Child-Friendly Schools are making a big difference for children in Cambodia: parents are more engaged, attendance is increasing, and lessons are fun. Improved education is not only helping the country heal its troubled past, but is also creating a possible path out of poverty for many thousands of families.
Since 2000, Room to Read has supported 10,000 girls across eight countries in Asia and Africa with an education through secondary school. The multiplier effect of this education will impact not only these girls but also their families and communities for generations to come. This is just one story among thousands.
