THE MMF SCHOOL IN CAMBODIA

Founded in 2004 by the Mercy Ministries Foundation (MMF), this school located in the Kbal Spean Village area of Poipet, Cambodia, may be the only hope for the young children (ages 4-8) of this poverty stricken community. The MMF School mission is to provide quality basic education for children and to teach the community the value of education.

Often the children in this area were left at home while their parents worked at the Thai-Khmer border, sometimes being left responsible for caring for even younger siblings. Some children would go to the border to beg or work small jobs just to survive. These children also had little to no access to education at this age and were often too poor to be sent to school. Hence, a lack of education in basic hygiene, nutrition and social manners was found. Such an environment places them in the “children at risk” category.

The MMF School, however, has disrupted this vicious cycle, providing a school for these precious children that is safe, warm, and filled with the love of God. The school previously had taught through the 4th grade, and this year will be adding a 5th grade! The mid-term goal is to be able to provide education through at least the 6th grade, where the children can then have some hope for a decent future.

Check out below some pictures of the school, its students, and the community it serves.
