Meeting Mr. Bai
We met Ban Bai in November 2013 in the remote village of Prek Trob, Cambodia.
This young boy had quit school to help provide for his family, but what he really wanted was to be in school with his friends.
Our generous supporters are the reason he was given a second chance at receiving an education.
Bai’s story is common.
In rural Cambodia, the drop out rate from primary school is 10.9% and 23.2% at the lower secondary level.
When Classroom of Hope and the Schools for Excellence project learned of Bai’s situation he was selected as a scholarship student. Bai’s tuition costs are now covered he has the school materials he needs and his family has been provided with rice and rations.
