President and Founder of Uniforms for Hope Organization
, contacted CCDO to see how they could best support our poorest children, we never imagined the impressive outcome. We are delighted to thank them for donating new uniforms for 1,000 schoolchildren, so that they can go to school without shame.
While school is compulsory and free in Cambodia, every child is mandated to have a school uniform and school supplies in order to attend. The $10 for the uniform and shoes can be a huge burden or a real detractor to sending children to school for the poorest families. Uniforms of Hope donated $10,000 so that the kids are ready when the school starts again in November. CCDO will provide the school supplies, so all children have a good start of learning.
