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.
The Cambodia 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.
