O Romdeng - From Shack to School
O Romdeng is a village in the Cambodian jungle north-east of Siem Reap. For many years the school consisted of a wooden shack, the only walls supporting two blackboards for four classes. In the wet, the students would stack the desks up to keep out the rain. When bright sun shone on the boards, the students could see the writing.
The photos below are a selection from the series taken to show the new school building - funded by Classroom of Hope - being used by the students and staff. Apart from cooler classrooms that can be decorated and improved attendance, the children love the new playground.
