A Project to Install Light and Fans
in Chun Nat High School
In February 2017, I visited a local high school, Chut Nat High School, the second largest high school in Kampong Cham, where 899 students attended G9-G12. It was a Saturday afternoon and morning classes had ended, and all the students left the school campus. In Cambodia, the government provides free schooling, but students only attend either morning session or afternoon session, a total of four hours per day. In the barely equipped classrooms, there was not even light and fans. Imagine you were a student trying to focus amid the heat and humidity in a room with no light. It was then that I had the idea of supporting the school with ceiling fans and lighting.
I noticed that in the classrooms with bare walls and molded ceiling, there was no light and no fans. I felt sorry for the students who have to work hard in the hot, and humid, and poorly lighted classrooms. It was then that I had the idea of supporting the school with ceiling fans and lighting.
Three months later, with the support of two other sponsors, we were able to install twenty-one classrooms with light and fans.
From this time onward, I knew education would be my call for Charity Cambodia.
