There are a total of 311 children in our 6 nursery schools (170 girls and 141 boys). It is very positive that there are so many girls in our schools.
Among the persons in charge of the schools we have 4 girls and 2 men. It seems that there is direct corralation between the number of pupils and the gender of the person in charge: more pupils with women.
Mr. Kam from the ministry of education is visiting the schools every 6 weeks. He will try to undertand if this corralation is true.
In the nursery school of Nefrelaye there are 70 pupils an enormous increase from 2 years ago when there was only 40 children. This can be directly link to the person in charge.
Some toys came with a container which were distributed among the schools. We also gave some second hand cloths which the mother association will sell in the village to have some funding for the school.
GlobalGiving is having a "donor drive" betwen the14 and 18 December 2020. For recurring donation of 4 times minimum, GlobalGiving will double the first donation up to a maximum of 200 us$.
Thanks for all you have done for this project and we take this opportunity to wish you an happy and healthy 2021.
