The Grady Grossman School began in Fall of 2000 when photographers George and Kari Grady Grossman decided to donate to American Assistance for Cambodia’s school building project called Put a Roof Over Their Heads.
We made the $15,700 donation in January of 2001 for school #81. Construction of the 5-room schoolhouse began in March 2001 and classes began in September 2001. But the building was just the beginning. Since then we have been building a relationship with the local community, supporting teachers, and building the infrastructure necessary for actual learning to take place.
The school is the only permanent structure in this remote Cambodian village in the Cardamom Mountains. We started with just 50 children in a dilapidated hut, and today there are more than 485 students and 7 teachers in a solid cement structure with clean water well, and a solar powered computer. Learn more about the history of the school.
In September 2005 Friends of the Grady Grossman School received its non-profit public charity 501(c)(3) status from the IRS. Your donations help support the school and are tax deductible. Please make a donation today!
