Last year, we launched an appeal to prevent 140 kids in Battambang from losing their education. While schools across Cambodia were closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19, these kids were unable to access home learning, putting them at risk of losing their education entirely.
We know education is key in helping families escape multidimensional poverty and thanks to our incredible community, we reached our goal of helping all 140 kids to stay in school!
Here is the story of Vanna, one of the kids we helped to stay in school despite them being closed for several months in 2021. Vanna continued to study at home and ended up coming first in her end of year exams!
