School’s Out… but no holiday

School’s out for 400 Cambodian students – and that’s not a holiday

 

Getting an education in the remote communities of Cambodia is a good way to improve the future welfare of hard-pressed families. Unfortunately over 400 Cambodian primary and secondary students will lose school funding support at the end of 2014 and thus miss the opportunity to continue in school, many being put to work to help gain the day-to-day dollars necessary to feed the family.
