Opened in 2011 in the Andoung Meas region of Ratanakiri, UWS Kah School serves families of the Kachock tribe, one of the smaller groups in the area.
Currently, the school at Kah village has two trained teachers, with limited on-site teacher accommodation. At times, teacher attendance has been an issue, but improving this is an immediate priority for UWS and the local District Office. The school will receive two new teachers for the 2014/15 academic year.
Additional upcoming plans for UWS Kah School include building a new teacher house, rewiring the solar equipment and updating the self-learning centre. We also plan to train a local woman as a librarian, as well as equipping all students with their own UWS school bag, containing an exercise book, basic stationery and crayons for drawing. With these additions we can look forward to a successful future for the Kah community.
UWS needs you! Kah school is currently seeking a sponsor
In order to carry out these plans, we’re looking for a Partner School to support UWS Kah School. Partner Schools are aligned to and believe in the UWS mission, and commit to action with us. Each partnership is bespoke and designed around what Partner Schools need and what they have to offer.
If your school is interested in supporting our work in this way, please get in touch via [email protected]
