Monithapana Khsach Kandal General and Technical High School, Kandal Province
Cambodia, a culturally-rich and diverse country in southeastern Asia, is still recovering from the repercussions of the 20 years of Khmer Rouge rule, a dark time in the country’s history that all but drained Cambodia’s cultural heritage.  Along with its partners, ROTA focused on cultural and educational development programs to help rebuild the country’s heritage, and give children hope for their futures.

INEE Minimum Standard Project
During the field mission, ROTA delegates  found that classroom spaces were not up to standards, and in most cases would severely impede learning due to lack of space, light,  ventilation, and general facilities.  Some classrooms lacked easy access to water as well, adversely affecting hygiene.  This was the primary factor in the high drop-out rates in the school, especially with female students.
