Visit to India-Cambodia Friendship School

A team led by H.E. Naveen Srivastava, Ambassador of India to Cambodia visited India-Cambodia Friendship School on 31 October 2015.   The team members consisted of doctors, Indian & Cambodian members of NGOs working in Cambodia, representatives of Indian business houses in Cambodia and officers from Indian Embassy.

Medical examination of about 250 children was carried out at the school premises and medicines provided to ailing children.  Gifts, books and lunch packages sponsored by NGOs/business houses were distributed to the school children.

The Trea Sar Primary School was established in 1979 in Khum Khanasor, Kampong Cham Province with one building donated by the local community.  In 1990, the then Cambodian National Defence Minister Mr. Kay Buntha donated another adjacent building with additional four rooms.  In 1991, the Cambodian Prime Minister H.E. Hun Sen renamed the school as Kampuchea-India Mithapheap (Friendship) School.  In 2002, Chief Monk of the local pagoda donated an additional building to the school.

During the visit of President of India H.E. Pratibha Patil to Cambodia in September 2010, grant-in-aid for the redevelopment of India-Cambodia Friendship School was announced.  The redevelopment of Friendship School was completed on 31 March 2015.

During the visit of Vice President of India H.E. Hamid M. Ansari to Cambodia in September 2015, the Project Completion Certificate was handed over by Vice President of India to Prime Minister of Cambodia.

The Friendship School is a long lasting symbol of friendship between India and Cambodia.
