Opening Days at Spitler School

One of the most exciting times of the year in Ang Chagn Village is the opening days of the new school year in early November. Our students return one year older, and they are anxious to begin their studies. We also welcome a new class of kindergarten students to begin their educational journey at Spitler School.    

This year our desks will be filled with over 750 students giving their best efforts to our 38 teachers and staff. Your financial support has made all of this possible for the past 15 years. We are very grateful.  

FlexOffice Provides Supplies for 2019-20 School Year

Spitler School was the recipient of a generous donation of school supplies from the Cambodian Children’s Fund sponsored by FlexOffice, a member of the Thien Long Group. We are grateful our Executive Director, Chea Sarin, and to FlexOffice’s Nguyen Thanh Dat, for their hard work and coordination in making this event possible.

These much-needed supplies will be a great help to our ongoing need for school supplies and provide Spitler School teachers with new resources to enhance the learning experience of their students.

Spitler School Welcomes Special Guests

At the end of September, the staff at Spitler School welcomed a volunteer group from the United States Holocaust Museum. Two special members of this group were Caryn and Howard Unger. When the Ungers were married in 2016, they encouraged their wedding guests and family to honor their union by helping raise funds for two new classrooms at Spitler School. The new classrooms allowed us to reach our current capacity of educating over 750 students per year!

SSF loved the Ungers’s creative idea of celebrating their wedding by helping the children of Spitler School. We were honored to be chosen to receive such generosity. Therefore, we were thrilled to show them first hand what a huge impact they have had on the children of Ang Chagn.
