About RSVP Cambodia
Rural Schools Village Program Cambodia
The idea for RSVP came about when Aki Ra was approached by a village chief shortly after Cambodian Self-Help Demining (CSHD) had finished clearing a minefield in an area of Cambodia just south of the Thai border. The children in this village had limited access to education; the closest school was 5 miles away. The chief had one simple request: to build a school on the newly cleared land. It was on this day that the Rural Schools Village Program began.
Now providing around 3,000 children with the opportunity to have an education, the Rural School Village Program is truly making a difference. As of 2018, we have built 22 schools.
How we do it?
Our schools are paid for by sponsors, donors, and friends of RSVP. Villagers are hired to construct the building and facility supplies. We provide Khmer children (and adults) with the essential tools to educate themselves for the better!
