46% of children who don’t go to school have to work to help their parents earn money. By providing girls with school uniforms, the limited money their parents earn can be used to feed the family.
How Free To Shine’s project addresses this problem:
Providing the school uniforms will help 250 girls go to school. This will help their parents to use the money they earn from working to buy food for the family, making them less worried and stressed, and ensuring the family has something healthy to eat.
Uniforms will be purchased and issued to girls, 1 month before school returns.
Free To Shine:
- Promotes safe communities for children through safety visits, social work interventions and community trainings;
- Supports the education of girls by providing financial and material support and improving their access to basic rights, and;
- Develops women in leadership by investing in the next generation of Cambodian women through training emerging leaders and funding university degrees.
