News 10/15 - Update Kok Chor school
Updated: Feb 12, 2019
We are proud to announce that the AKfC school in Kok Chor will officially start on November 2nd 2015. As we have learned from our partners on the spot, this is due to the political situation in Cambodia: The Prime Minister of Cambodia, Mr. Hun Sen, is currently in the middle of his election campaign which always takes place in Autumn. For this purpose he has convoked most or the teachers to do governmental work and has thus postponed school start for the whole country to November 2nd.
This doesn´t mean that our school project in Kok Chor is standing still. Meanwhile we have embellished the classrooms with Khmer decor as you can see on the pictures below.
Also we decided, together with the Sisters, that the school will officially be called “AKfC School” as the word “Kiss” cannot be used in public.
Further more we are currently negotiating with several suppliers from Battambang regarding slides, playground/ outdoor facilities for the physical education of the children in Kok Chor.
As you can also see on the pictures we are still missing tables, chairs and teaching material. We have found another generous donor for this project and will soon let you know more about this issue.
Another big news is that the authorities promised that power shall be available in the village by the end of 2015.
A lot going on in our little village of Kok Chor and we will keep you posted with news and pictures very soon
