As my trip in Cambodia slowly comes to an end, I wanted to shed light on one of the main reasons I’m here. These are photos of a little school in a village, 15 minutes outside the town of Battambang and 4 hours out of Siem Reap. The school currently houses 40 students but is looking to double that within the next year. They don’t get any government funding, with the teachers working as volunteers to make sure these students get a proper education. I say students, not kids, because every student is over the age of 17 and couldn’t afford education when they were younger because their families are poor, and they had to work to help put food on the table. Now they have a second chance to make better of their lives through the school. I’m not going to show you their living arrangements, and how they all sleep on thin mattresses on the floor, because the point of this is to show you how beyond all that, they are still trying to learn. In order to further their skills, the school wants to build a computer lab. In Australia, we are so privileged when it comes to our education we don’t even think about how something like a computer lab could make a difference, but for these students it would be massive. Along with my cousin Chris and friend Leo, who are living in the school with these students, we are looking to raise money to help the school build this computer lab. Any donation would help. I will also be organising a fundraiser back when I’m in Sydney so listen out for that.
