Join the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights on Giving Tuesday, November 28, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at LongDrop Cider to support “Pedals and Packs.” Food, fun, and live music, combined with a $5 ticket bicycle raffle and $1 from each cider pint sold will be donated to support “Pedals and Packs.”
Thirty years ago, Cambodia emerged from a brutal regime that resulted in complete destruction of schools. Since then, rebuilding the country’s educational system has been a top priority and considerable improvements have been made. However, despite these efforts, Cambodia’s education sector remains blemished by limited access to quality instruction, inadequate school facilities and high dropout rates. Access to and completion of primary school remain a pressing dilemma. Getting to a school where students can complete upper primary grades may mean traveling far distances from home.
Each $50 donation to Pedals and Packs will provide one student in Cambodia with a bicycle and backpack – and one less obstacle on the road to an education.
