Cambodia

In 2008, Jaimie Sheth and a friend were traveling in southeast Asia and were inspired by three Australian men who were building a playground in the region. Because of that chance meeting, Jaimie and her friend were moved to build a school the following year in Cambodia. The Jaimie Sheth and Chi Tran School was built in 2009 for 355 children in the Province of Prey Veng in the District of Kamchay Mear near the Vietnam border. Jaimie and her friend were able to see the impact of their efforts on her journey to Cambodia in 2010. They were able to meet teachers, students, several villagers, and the mayor on their trip. While they were there, they donated school supplies to the students. This was the first project Jaimie facilitated and the impact on her was so profound she formed the JD Sheth Foundation.
