Covid’s Financial Impact on SSF

In 2021, your donations allowed us to continue to provide salaries for English and IT teachers and their programs at Spitler School, Kurata School, and Stephen Mazujian Middle School. You have also provided funding for:

  1. Food supplements to many students and their families.
  2. Upgrade to our internet capabilities to support remote learning during the pandemic
  3. A new bus that teachers used to deliver and pick up homework assignments to students during the shutdown and will be used to transport students to middle school.
  4. A new library building at Stephan Mazujian Middle School.
  5. An expansion of the administration building at Spitler School. 
  6. New school uniforms and school supplies for 6th grade graduates.
  7. Continued support for our cultural dance program.
  8. Teacher supplements and administrative salaries.
  9. Pandemic supplies – masks, soaps, hand sanitizers, thermometers, filtered water, etc. 

Finally a Joyous Celebration!

In early December our Spitler School 6th grade class rode the new school bus for a visit to Stephen Mazujian Middle School, where they will be attending middle school starting in January. Later in December we celebrated their graduation from elementary school. After so long in the pandemic lockdowns, it was a joyous ceremony for both the graduating students and their families—most who have also suffered through recent unemployment and food shortages.

Congratulations to our 99 graduates and we wish them well as they continue their education at the middle school, which is now supported by the Spitler School Foundation.

You Provide Hope!

Because of you, for the last 15 years we have helped provide hope and endurance for these rural communities, students, and families, who have limited resources and access to basic necessities. As we move into the end of 2021, we hope we are able to communicate well how much of a true impact you have made in their lives. For those of you who have had to the experience of visiting Cambodia and our schools, you have seen first hand the joy your generosity brings—the smiles from our students, the improvement of life of the community in the schools’ villages, and how your seemingly small donation makes tremendous impacts in opportunities of others. And for those who have yet to visit Cambodia, we look forward to the day we can welcome you with cheers of appreciation from students lining our campus’ walkways.  In the meantime, we welcome any questions, ideas, or thoughts you may have about our Foundation, our motivation, history, and passion for providing education for these Cambodian children.
