Donations in Action – School kits, Cambodia

Poverty prevents many families in Cambodia from outfitting their children with basic learning materials. Disadvantaged families cannot afford school kits or school uniforms and children standing out in the crowd feel isolated, excluded and deprived.

To improve school attendance rates, school kits – including notebooks, textbooks, full pencil cases, a school bag and a school uniform – have been distributed to the children most in need.

“Providing tools for better education can bring new hope and dignity to thousands of children. Pens, pencils and a school bag – these ordinary things become extraordinary when they are assembled and can make a real difference to children’s futures, by enabling them to go to school”.

– Sophiep, Program Manager, ChildFund Cambodia
