Donations in Action – Bicycles, Cambodia

Many children in Cambodia, and girls in particular, are unable to attend school without a bicycle. Schools may often be located too far from their homes and safety is a concern. A bicycle is a great way to give girls safer access to education and hundreds of children in the Svay Rieng province of Cambodia are already going to school more regularly, thanks to the support of ChildFund’s Donations with a Difference program.

“When I received a bicycle from ChildFund Cambodia I am very happy. In the past, it took me 30 minutes to go to school. It was very difficult. It was hot, and painful in my legs. Sometimes, I could not arrive school on time because I didn’t have a bicycle. Now I have received a bicycle it is easier for me to go to school, it is not like in the past. I am trying my best to complete grade 12 and I will to be a good tailor to support my family”.
