Schools of Life

Recognizing, educating, and promoting the benefits of good character to students, parents, and communities.

In honor of Karen Ann Rettig & Dr. Robert Stephen Vandrak "Schools of Life"

​We have built a school that was dedicated in Karen and Dr. Bob's name in January, 2017.

Since then, we have built 9 more schools surrounding the city of Siem Reat, a town in Northwestern Cambodia.

Each new school only cost $10,000 to build, supply, equip with clean water, and staff.

To sustain and continue educating at the "Schools of Life" the ongoing associated cost is only $175 per month after the first year.

Please consider being our partner both financially and prayerfully.

We have opened doors to help locals get educated.

As the schools grow the needs grow. We strive to help these individuals have a better life.

We regularly send fresh water and supplies.

Together we will make a much needed positive impact for our world's most needy children!

Keep watching for more pictures of the great work including the floating villages, expansions and even the smiles of the soccer team.

Thank You,
Heidi Vandrak/David Rettig
