In Cambodia, many students have to travel a long distance between home and school. According to research conducted by USAID, long-distance travelling accounted for 10% of the total dropouts. A bicycle allows a student to get to school, and also take one or two siblings alongside. On average, a family in the countryside has three children, yet there is only one bikeat the disposal of the entire family. The bike is mostly used by the parents to earn their living and to support their children’s education. The bike is playing an important role to the kids’ education. Under our Education Programme to foster students’ mobility, we deliverd yet another 13 bikes, this time round to carefully selected students in need, at Anlong Pir Primary School. We’re determined to help eliminate secondary dropouts, reduce poverty. We believe that education is the key to a quality of life. Education is the key to better one child, one family, one community, one country, and to better our world. Please consider donating to our project and make a more significant impact on others. As to these bicycles, we would like to thank three family donors in Switzerland for their valuable contribution.
