II- Children’s Basic Education (CBE) School
is one of SCC’s projects which is located in Veal Village, Kok Chork Commune, Siem Reap District, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. It is around 1km west of Angkor Wat Temple, approximately 3km from Siem Reap International Airport and across from the big white Angkor Hot Air Balloon.
CBE School was founded in 2010 by Mr. Prum Thoeun and Christine and Doug Frewer, a generous Australian couple. During Christine and Doug’s had the first trip to Cambodia, and they were introduced to SCC by Timothy, their son who had been working in Cambodia and Lao of his first research.
The name of the school was changed from “CBE Angkor” to “CBE Christine” after SCC management discussion. Why is it called CBE Christine? It was because of SCC aimed at dedicating this name to Christine who passed away from breast cancer in 2014. Doug Frewer has also done significant job in introducing and fundraising for SCC and the school in Australia, where the school goes by the name CBE-Bush School.
