We, Village Earth Cambodia, recently have opened a new school in Beong Kak area called Beong Kak Youth School. Our purpose of opening this school is to develop human resources in the community by providing English classes, dancing lessons, dental care for little children, and a medical clinic….
Finally, we got 10 kids to go to school. In order to keep them in school, we have to support them constantly so they will not be chased out from school. In Cambodia, because the government pays a very low salary to teachers, the schools have to collect money from students every day to support the teachers’ sustainability.
We also have provided each of the students with some money to pay their teachers, as well as some school materials such as books, pens, pencils, writing boards, uniforms, and bags. They were so excited and grateful for a chance to go back to school.
