This year will be the first year that an entire graduating class of Koh Ker Primary School alumni will continue onto High School in Siem Reap. But in order to truly know where they are going, you must first understand where they have been.
Many impoverished children in rural Cambodia don’t have access to adequate funds to procure uniforms, shoes and their school supplies in order to attend primary school. The Ponheary Ly Foundation provides these “school bundles” to children who would otherwise not be going to school.
Once all the children from a village are present at their school and properly equipped, the PLF supports the school sufficiently to provide a quality of education that is equal to that which is accessible in the urban communities.
