In Brief: Pepy relocates to Siem Reap

Pepy, an NGO that raises money for educational projects by hosting adventure and volunteer tours, moved its headquarters from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap last month and plans to shut down its office in the capital. The move was due in part to a campaign to repair schools in Siem Reap province. Maryanne Bylander, managing director of Pepy, said the bidding process has begun for the construction of four to five new classrooms in the Chanleas Dai district, and the majority of companies that have submitted bids are based in Siem Reap.
