Every child has a right to quality education. With education, a child can have a better chance at achieving his highest potential as well as making significant contributions to his family and community.
In Cambodia, the literacy rate is still low at an alarming rate of 77.6%. Multiple factors including poverty contribute to this situation. Some families would rather have their children working to help bring food to the table instead of going to school.
