A time of Transition

In the 4th quarter of 2021, Kroch Bopha, Director of ABO, decided to relocate the school, which became another new beginning.  This change came about after management changes within the organization. It is now located back at What Po Langkar, Slor Kram Village, Siem Reap. Slor Kram Village has a population of 2,553 people. The Slor Kram commune comprises eight villages with around 220,000 people. The local monks in the village are providing their Pagoda for classes initially.  So far, 14 students have enrolled for classes that will begin in January 2022.  At this stage, there will be two classes. The plan is to build a new school and develop education and community services as per ABO’s previous model. 

 

The change in location and school is in its early days.  While this will be a new school, it will have the benefit and experience of Kroch Bopha to lead this initiative.  In addition, Mr Phall will join as the Education officer (previous teacher at ABO school). Of course, ABO and Bopha will have the support of ABO Rural School Siem Reap Inc and donors from around the world.

 

A change in bank account details and the building of new staff and board members have been the focus for Bopha, ensuring that any local regulatory matters are set up correctly.  Meanwhile, the Australian incorporated society team members are working on final pieces of documentation to enable the receipt of tax-deductible gifts for ABO in Cambodia. We hope this will be in place during the first half of 2022.  Working together, we determine all school needs, including staffing requirements, laptops, whiteboards, supplies and any other material. Once we understand these needs, we will develop a budget for 2022 and determine various ways to raise funds for the school.  

 

We are all excited about ABO entering a new challenge in 2022.
