How much effort would your children make to get to school in the morning? They might be prepared to brave a little snow for a couple of days, but the photos in this post show the efforts which our children at CCC school have to go to for days and weeks on end, during the rainy season.
Many of them travel miles to get to school every day, but still turn up eager to learn after an arduous journey.
The new school year has started and CamKids is proud to announce that nearly all our CCC students passed their final exams of 2015-16 and therefore moved up to the next grade.
The new academic year of 2016-17 started in November and prior to this we were very busy getting all the supplies ready to distribute to the students. This involved measuring all the children’s feet and collecting data for their uniform sizes. Our supplies cannot be bought locally so everything is sourced from Phnom Penh – quite a task!
This year, CamKids provided 52 bicycles to our graduate students who were moving on to study at the local secondary school located 30 minutes away from CCC school. In addition, all our graduate students were supplied with uniforms, shoes, school bags and study materials. We wish them all well in this next step.
We also completed stocking CCC school with new books, pencils, art supplies etc. in readiness for the new school year and our enthusiastic students.
This year we have just about managed to squeeze our students into the existing classrooms but by next year we must add at least 2 more classrooms to accommodate our growing number of pupils and we would also dearly love to add a separate library for students and the villagers to spend some leisure time and improve their literacy skills.
It costs only a few pounds per week to sponsor a child at the school. If you are interested in sponsoring a school child or donating towards this fantastic project, please contact us.
If you live in the UK, you can text CAMK13 £10 to 70070 to

Even a small donation of a few pounds from all of our
