Prek Pneu Catch Up School

  • Opened in 2011
  • 163 students enrolled
  • 86 boys and 77 girls
  • Student-teacher ratio of 20:1 compared to the 46:1 nationwide average.
  • Many families cannot afford to pay for school expenses such as books, supplies, uniforms, transportation, and informal fees that many teachers demand from their students and children often quit school to work and support their families.
  • A large portion of the students who attend the school are ethnic Vietnamese. In some cases, Vietnamese children can face harsh discrimination by teachers, which affects their ability to learn and leads some parents to remove their children from school rather than have them face the abuse.
  • On average, most of the students in the program are two to three grade levels behind.

Chanrith

  • Role: Co-manager of the Asian Hope Catch Up Schools
  • How long have you been with Asian Hope?   Since 2011
  • What do you love about your job?  "I believe in education," Chanrith says. "And I believe that everyone deserves a bright future."
  • What do you want for your students’ future?   "If you look around this area, you'll find hospitals and micro-finance places. I talk to the kids about how they can get there with an education," he says. "People who don't have a high education, it's harder for them to find jobs. But someone with an education has more choices."
