Jumpah School completing its Fifth Year
During the school's first six years, enrollment grew from 35 to 344 children.
During the last school break, Rozo (principal) and all our teachers were a bit worried about the number of students who would register... Especially since we raised the monthly fee from $10 to $13.
The fees were raised in order to make progress in reaching our goal of a sustainable school -- one that will, eventually, not require outside assistance. It is a challenging goal, for sure, but Cambodia needs a successful model that can be sustainable and provide a phenomenal education experience for the children.
Enrollment has grown since the initial year.
Year 1 -- 35
Year 2 -- 98
Year 3 -- 128
Year 4 -- 137 (Feb '17)
Year 4 -- 148 (Apr '17)
Year 5 -- 171 (Oct '17)
Year 5 -- 195 (Jan '18)
Year 6 -- 344 (Jan '10)

Hoping for another school year with increased attendance. School is open for preschool, kindergarten, and grades 1 - 6.
Many children do not go to school -- either because they don't live near a school or they don't have money to pay the teacher.
