Greetings from ABCS and Rice!

We wanted to express our continued gratitude to you, our donors!

As you probably know, during the height of the pandemic our classes were closed to our students.  Because of your generosity, we were able to provide them with school supplies, homework assignments and treats.  We also continued to distribute food and personal protective supplies such as masks.  

Your donations helped us to provide clean water to more families than ever before. We were also able to distribute much needed  bicycles, bore wells, and assist those in need of hospital stays.  We also helped cover funeral costs within our community as well.  

Because of you, our former graduates and current scholarship students are all still hard at work in their prospective universities despite the shutdowns over the past few years.  

With your help, our food distribution continues and our 14 daytime classes are running.  Government schools have reopened and with Khmer tutoring our students are catching up. Our kitchen is open for lunch five days a week, and we hope to reinstate breakfast in the coming months. While the farm has closed, our new garden is productive thanks to parent volunteers under the coaching of our very own Ellen Healy A.K.A "Cha Harley."

We could not accomplish all of this without your help.  Our staff, students and families thank you from the bottom of their hearts.!

The students and staff are forever grateful for you, our generous donors.  

 

Because of you ABCS and RICE is able to feed the minds and bodies of these precious students year round.  

 

With your assistance we send rice, vegetables, other food, and toiletries home to our students’ families as well.  This encourages our students to continue their studies. 

 

Some of our past graduates have gone on to study in the field of medicine and engineering.  Helping our students learn English improves their ability to enter the workforce.  

 

You have changed the lives of hundreds of students for the better by helping to provide nutrition, education, social support and assistance with their health.

 

Thanks to you, these children and their families are thriving.  

 

We hope that you have a great day!

Greetings to you from ABCS and RICE!

 We are so happy that our students have been returning to class in person since January 2022 .  We started out by offering classes to our older students and now the smaller children are attending as well.  

 Because of your generosity we have been able to feed our students hot meals.  Thanks to you we have rehired teachers and provided our students with much needed school supplies such as textbooks, notebooks, pencils, art supplies and masks! 

With your help we are doing our best to feed these smiling faces and get our students back on track with their education.

 We could not do this without you!  We hope you have a wonderful day!

Greetings From ABCS and RICE!

We would like to thank you for your kind donations!  We are happy to announce that after having been closed for 20 months, our school has now been given permission to reopen!

Because of this pandemic our students attended school at ABCS and RICE for the first four months of 2020.   Months later we provided online learning but very few of our students had access to the internet.  Our school reopened in early 2021 for only two months. 

Despite best efforts our students have fallen behind academically as has their grasp of English.  We are therefore undergoing a change in our programming to meet this challenge.  We are revising our academic programs as well as revamping the breakfast and lunch club programs.  We have a skeleton crew and no volunteers in sight!

Because of you, we continue to offer food to the students and 250 families at ABCS and RICE each week.

We cannot thank you enough for your kindness!  On behalf of our students and their families we would like to wish you Happy Holidays!

August News from ABCS and Rice!

 

Hello from ABCS and Rice to all of our kind donors!  

Although Siem Riep has been hit hard with the delta variant,  we are happy to report that none of our families at ABCS and Rice have been struck with Covid 19.  

One month ago we had to close our Fully Belly Farm but fortunately the five families that worked there have been successfully placed elsewhere. 

Because of your generosity we have been able to provide weekly food supplies to 250 families and look forward to further increasing the distribution of food and supplies as soon as possible.   

With your help we have been able to run some virtual classes for those students who have access to the internet.  ABCS and Rice has been reaching out to teachers around the globe to assist with creating content.  

Although our students miss attending ABCS and Rice daily for school, they gratefully bring letters and drawings in appreciation of the food they receive because of your kind donations.  

The students and families at ABCS and RICE really appreciate your generosity.  Thanks so much!

Thank You!
Thank You!
