Chickens, Covid, Caring and Loss...

ABO care and community
ABO care and community

ABO has experienced several challenges recently; they have come in the form of development, creativity, love, and loss.

With covid changing the world, challenging our everyday way of life, and impacting students worldwide, ABO had to get creative - and creative we got!

During periods of lockdown, teachers became creative in many ways to provide students the safety to attend school once a week to eat a meal, deliver their completed work for the past week, and receive their homework for the upcoming week.

With a vision for the future and concerns about sustainability, the Executive Director and Education Officer became busy developing a chicken farm. The business model aims to generate future income to support the school and provide food security for students and their families. This work is underpinned by our commitment to contributing to Cambodia's Sustainable Development Goals and, in particular: No poverty and Decent Work and Economic Growth.

We were so very grateful to have the office and computer room completed recently. Students enjoyed tending to the surrounding gardens for the beautification process that enhances their learning journeys.

Sadly, ABO suffered a great loss in April, losing Teacher Mr. Piseth to a tragic illness. Piseth started his connection with ABO as a young student, graduating and pursuing higher studies; Piseth then became an accountant and entrepreneur businessman. Piseth and was a much cared for and respected teacher to his many students, and his memory will live long, bringing a smile and tear to the eye of many.
