SC Grade Schools

Sustainable Cambodia now operates two grade schools, and has sponsored a number of village preschools. The Sylvia Lasky Memorial School was the first effort of Sustainable Cambodia, established in 2001 with only a handful of children. The school, near the town of Pursat in central Cambodia, now has more than 300 children from the poorest families in the surrounding villages. The school is bustling with activity all day long, with classes including English, mathematics, science, geography, Khmer literature, culture, and computers.

The Kravanh Bright Future Center (KBFC) is a grade school in the heart of rural Pursat Province. It opened in February 2008 as the first expansion of Sustainable Cambodia’s education program beyond the Sylvia Lasky Memorial School and village preschools. KBFC (which was named by the students) opened with the help of the TRIVANI Foundation and has been thriving ever since. On inauguration day the school had 2 teachers and 85 students. Now it has 10 teachers and 240+ students. Classes at the KBFC start each day at 6 AM and end at 7 PM, with classes in Khmer, English, math, physics, computers and chemistry.
