Rural Schools Support Organization
A Sister NGO of the Landmine Relief Fund
Who Are We?
The Rural Schools Support Organizations is a Cambodian NGO dedicated to supporting the rural and underserved people of Cambodia. A sister NGO of the Landmine Relief Fund, RSSO has initiated projects to build, supply, and maintain 27 schools across rural Cambodia and to bring relief to those suffering from food insecurity due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
RSSO is a constantly expanding and evolving organization, adapting to support those most in need. You can read about our different projects, and find links to their respective websites below!
Rural Schools Village Program
The Rural Schools Village Program (RSVP) is a Cambodian NGO that builds schools in rural villages that have no access to education. We then continue to support the schools by providing school supplies and paying teachers.
So far, RSVP has constructed 27 schools- supporting 118 teachers and over 3,100 students. We are continuously growing and supporting Cambodian education one school at a time!
At each school we provide a toilet and a well, often the only one of each in the village. An improved quality of life, and the power of education can do wonders for these kids. We also make sure our teachers are sufficiently paid so that they can stay working at the school.

The Together Project
THE TOGETHER PROJECT (TTP), was initiated in 2020 to deal with the impact that COVID-19 had on the economy of Cambodia.
In March of 2020, the Landmine Relief Fund, an American charity, worked with RSSO to distribute food to those who lost their jobs and saw their support system collapse. Buying 20 tons of rice, they thought it would last 6 months. By the end of the year, they had distributed over 250 metric tons of food. With each 10 kg bag of rice providing 100 servings.
TTP is now moving to establish sustainable, long term programs so people can help themselves. This manifested with the construction of a self-sustaining farming system that includes a hydroponic greenhouse, net garden, and mushroom farm. TTP’s ultimate goal is to recreate this farm, in whole or in part, at the 27 schools built by RSVP.
