Latest news and updates from School Uniform Shop.
We are thrilled to update you on the partnership SchoolUniformShop.co.uk and our customers support, with The Ponheary Ly Foundation. It is a fantastic joint effort to raise funds for a cause close to our hearts—providing school uniforms for children in Cambodia. Optional donations have totalled £1,579. Thank you!
The Ponheary Ly Foundation, established by former teacher and tour guide in Cambodia, has grown from its humble beginnings. Starting with just one student, the foundation now sponsors 2,800 students across four primary schools and five secondary schools in rural northwestern Cambodia. Ponheary Ly's personal experience with poverty has fuelled her passion for children in rural Cambodia to attend school and receive and get an education.
The Ponheary Ly Foundation focuses on promoting access to quality education in Siem Reap and Preah Vihear provinces. Their mission, guided by a UN human rights-based approach, seeks to rebuild the country's civil society post-genocide in the 1970s by emphasising the fundamental role of education.
Education, they believe, is a catalyst for developing future democratic leaders, eradicating poverty, promoting equality, and enhancing the overall health and well-being of communities. Providing uniforms is at the core of the organisation's mission.
The cost of a student's uniform, approximately £5 for junior school and £6 for senior school, often becomes a financial barrier for families often engaged in subsistence farming. By supplying uniforms and necessary school supplies, the foundation ensures that all village children can attend school, not just a select few.
Every October, open enrolment begins, leading to an organised effort by the Ponheary Ly Foundation to distribute uniforms, books, and supplies to students through alliances with village elders, teachers, and administrators.
To amplify our impact, we have integrated a donation option in our checkout process, allowing customers to easily add optional donations (£2, £5, or £6) while placing orders.
All donations will be directed to the Ponheary Ly Foundation through Elgar Rotary Club, based in Herefordshire. This ensures that every penny contributed goes directly toward getting Cambodian children ready for school.
Your support makes a significant difference in the lives of these children. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to making a positive impact - £1,579 will fund hundreds of uniforms.
For over a decade, SchoolUniformShop.co.uk and our customers have been committed to making a positive impact in the lives of children worldwide through charitable giving. Proving that together we can make a difference one ethical purchase at a time.
Thank you for being a part of our journey and for helping us make a difference where it truly matters.
Today, we are particularly proud to share our journey of supporting rural schools in Cambodia, a country that holds a special place in our hearts.
Our story in Cambodia began when our CEO & Founder, Luke Conod, had the privilege of visiting Koh Ker Primary School. It was during this visit that we discovered the incredible work being done by The Ponheary Ly Foundation, a charity organisation dedicated to improving education in Cambodia.
Inspired by their mission, SchoolUniformShop.co.uk embarked on a mission of our own to support three schools in rural Cambodia: Koh Ker School, Romchek School, and Khnar Village School.

“At SchoolUniformShop.co.uk, we insist that our suppliers keep to rigorous ethical standards, but so should we! That’s why we contribute to The Ponheary Ly Foundation movement, promoting education for young rural Cambodians who desperately need resources to support their learning.”

Our most recent endeavour in Khnar Village speaks volumes about our commitment to education in Cambodia.
Working with Hereford Rotary Club, we donated over £10,000 to help construct a new building that would house additional classrooms, workshops, and a Library.
This expansion would enable the school to accommodate more students and offer a wider range of educational opportunities.
At Koh Ker Primary School, we were determined to make a meaningful difference. We contributed to the development of three inspiring programs: The Wellness Program, English Language Instruction, and the Library.
These programs aimed to provide students with holistic support, nurturing their physical and intellectual well-being.
The Library, a place of endless possibilities, was a project close to our hearts. With our support, we were able to create a space where students could dive into the world of books which we helped to fund, hoping they will expand their knowledge, and fuel their imagination.
In Romchek School, we recognised the importance of providing essential resources for education. We donated school uniforms to ensure that every child had the opportunity to attend school with pride.
The libraries we are helping establish serve as the heart of these schools. Language teachers rely on the library's resources for their weekly lesson plans, and a well-managed library is essential for a seamless learning experience.
With a sturdy foundation already in place, the teachers can then work to enhance these libraries to cater to the diverse needs of the students and staff.
Every time you shop with us at the SchoolUniformShop.co.uk, you contribute to our ongoing projects in Cambodia. Your purchases directly impact the lives of these children and their access to quality education. We are grateful to all our customers who have played a role in this noble cause – thank you!
