- AU$15 will pay for $30 of schoolbooks, enough for two children from poor, rural communities.
- AU$30 will pay for a $60 bicycle so a child who lives 10 kilometres from school can get there safely every day.
- AU$250 will become $500, training a teacher who can provide education and hope to thousands of children.
Because the sad truth is that every year in rural Cambodia, hundreds of thousands of bright, optimistic young children drop out of school before they turn 14, driven by poverty or a lack of quality education nearby. These are children like Rith, who tells his story in the moving video below.
We can help – if you help us. This Life Cambodia started out twelve years ago thanks to individual donors who believed in our potential to change lives. We still rely on them to help us be creative and effective enough to change lives that others cannot. We are an acclaimed, award-winning NGO known for effectiveness and low overheads. We work alongside Cambodian communities to transform the kind of rural schools that large NGOs sometimes ignore, giving thousands of children a future. Don’t believe us? Just ask Rith:
“Now I am going to stay in school I will be a doctor. Then I can help my fellow Cambodians, and my parents when they get older.”
Help a child like Rith and you help a whole family, a whole community, a whole country. Please donate, and thank you.
