Our Mission and Goals

Rural Schools Village Program Cambodia

Mission Statement

Our objective is to build schools in rural villages with limited access to education so children in these villages can learn to read and write Khmer, as well as basic math skills.

Our History

Our organization was started in the 1990s by Aki Ra, CSHD, while he was demining in rural villages. These villages had no access to education. The village chief approached Aki Ra and asked him to build them a school.

In 2014, the name Rural School Village Program (RSVP) was established in order to raise awareness to this cause. We have built 27 schools, continue to provide school supplies, and more. With donations and support from sponsors, several schools have also received bicycles and uniforms!
