Canadian Coins for Cambodia is the vision of Anne Mackie, Chhourn Im and Srey Poev Im, three people who had a goal to see Cambodia children have a brighter future. The project is managed by Anne Mackie in Canada and Chhourn and Srey Peov in Phnom Pehn.
Over the last seven years, this small project has had an impact on all of the lives of the people that live in Krany Themy. Recently our first graduate from the English school went off to University and has returned to the school as a teacher. We are currently sponsoring two students attending Univeristy in Phnom Pehn who have plans to be a nurse and a lawyer. These success stories encourgae the other children attending the Krang Themy Village school to finish their education and have more opportunties to better themselves and their families.
Canadian Coins for Cambodia English school in Krang Themy village has been funded primarily by friends, family, small fundraisers and two local companies. We are planning on moving to the next steps and are looking for help. The school is in need of upgrades and renovations, including a new roof as the current one leaks and has rats in the thatch. New tiles for the dirt floors, walls with windows and doors, an inside bathroom and some new media equipment to assist with learning.
For the children of the village, English speaking skills will give them options for more successful employment in any field they choose. We see a strong future for our English school in the Krang Themy village and appreciate your support!
