One bike, one dream

Meet 17-year-old Lay. She is a grade six student at a primary school in Kratie province, Cambodia.

Lay received a bicycle last year from ChildFund Cambodia through ChildFund Australia`s Gifts for Good project as her house is located more than one kilometre from her school, along a mountainous road.

Lay loves her bike and uses it to go to school, to go to the rice fields and to go to the creek to get water and wash clothes. She also shares her bike with her five other siblings for their daily transportation.

Lay loves going to school. Her new bike is helping her to reach her dream of completing her education. The closest high school is at the district centre which is around 40 kilometres from her village.

Lay’s parents are both very happy that Lay now has a bicycle to get safely and easily to school. They are very thanks to ChildFund Cambodia for supporting their family and the community for a better life!
