Founded in April 2004 by Foster City, CA Rotarian Hans Eide, the Cambodia Academy at Mongkol Borei provides a basic education aimed at reaching Cambodia's poorest youth.
After having been both touched by the genuine kindness of
the locals and yet unsettled by the widespread poverty suffered in the
aftermath of the Vietnam War and Khmer Rouge era, Hans led efforts to turn
an underutilized building into a thriving school in a region where
education in neither compulsory nor affordable for the poorest families.
Academy is located in the Mongkol Borei District, which is within the
Banteay Meanchey Province, in northwestern Cambodia. There are
approximately 157 villages in the district, and as of 1998 the population
was about 138,000.
