Countryside children are deprived of education due to poverty, work, or lack of schools. They arrive at The Cambodian Children's House of Peace several years behind age level, e.g. a 15 year old in 4th grade. Class size and lack of resources in public schools in the city cannot make up for this. The children are required to attend extra classes for extra fees, and continue to struggle.
The private school has a limit of 25 students per class and qualified teachers to help these children make progress towards 8th or 12th grade graduation. Some of the children will be able to promote to an extra grade-level, closer to their age.
With an 8th-grade or 12th grade certificate, these 30 children will have an opportunity for employment or higher education that will allow them to break the cycle of poverty, assist their families in the countryside, and improve their country.
