The news from This Life Cambodia

Happy 2020 to all of our supporters, and welcome to our latest update.

Education has been on our minds a lot over the last few months. Here in Cambodia, secondary schools started again in November and launched enrolment drives, encouraging impoverished children in rural and urban communities to come along on the first day of school in November. We supported these efforts with a new campaign on the importance of education, which ran chiefly on our Facebook page – maybe you saw it?

In the flagship video for this campaign (click on the link to watch) we shone a spotlight on one school which managed to improve in a very short space of time with our support. Just 3 years ago it was struggling, but this year it was recognized as the best school in Siem Reap after radically improving its infrastructure and teaching.

Your donations contributed to this incredible effort. If you watch the video you will see many children arriving to schools on the bicycles you helped us buy. Without them, children often wouldn’t be able to reach distant schools, and would probably have no choice but to work in farms or migrate in search of manual labour work.

Why do we always focus so much on education? For the last 12 years we have gone into Cambodian communities and asked them what they care about, and education has always been one of the first things mentioned. Most families – even those who are poor and lack education themselves – want their children to succeed in life and know that education is the best route out of poverty. Education is essential not just to children and families, but to the development of the nation.

Thank you for also recognizing this and for supporting us in 2019. We really appreciate it.

Yours

The TLC team
