Cambodia: School under a tree

A young man in Cambodia, born into poverty, battled all odds to reach tertiary education. With that knowledge empowering his own life, he wanted to pass it on to others in his impoverished community. He started a school under a tree, the only resource available. We learned of his dedicated and excellent work and put together a shipment to equip a full school. Afterwards two of our team visited and saw the kids in uniforms, at desks, with text books, school equipment, sports equipment, a daily hot lunch cooked in the newly stocked kitchen and more. “Everything you see came from Crossroads” said the teacher. Now he can give the kids proper schooling and they can go on to pass it to the next generation. That school has now been operating for over a decade. All it took was a carefully tailored shipment to this man who was well placed to make a huge difference in his community. We help others help others.
