Welcome Friends of the Grady Grossman School
Today, nearly 500 children attend the Grady Grossman School in the village of Chrauk Tiek, Cambodia.
It’s hard to believe in 2001 we started with just 50 students studying on a dirt floor under a broken, thatched roof.
The support the students and teachers receive from our ever-widening community of friends has created a relationship with the outside world that gives this remote community hope. They are working hard to create a better future for themselves.

Our school serves the children from five villages in the Southern Cardamom Mountains near Mt. Aural. Each year more parents choose to send their kids to school, rather than to work, because the Grady Grossman School is perceived as a "good school" with a computer, English lessons, a library, a large garden, and teachers that show up everyday!
Current Program: Treasure a Teacher
The Khmer teachers are dedicated to education; however, their jobs are made more difficult by the inconsistent payment of their $30/month government salaries. Our goal is to ensure that we have teachers in the classrooms by supporting a living wage for these hardworking men and women. Learn more
George will be traveling to Cambodia and visiting the school in late April. Subscribe now to Be The Change Network to follow along.
