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.
Having a bicycle is more than a child’s wish, it is a student’s transportation to his or her future. 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. Donate at www.pedalsandpacks.org
