About this impact


In the heart of Cambodia, remote schools, marred by deteriorated infrastructure, resonate with silent hopes of countless young minds yearning for a brighter future. Unhygienic and hazardous conditions have tragically rendered these schools more of a deterrent than a haven of learning. 

The repercussions? Staggering dropout rates, dwindling attendance, and a community that remains oblivious to the transformative power of education. Yet, amidst these challenges lies the hope for change. With the help of this card, we're creating spaces where aspirations flourish and potential is realised. With the safety and motivation that a secure classroom provides, watch as children feel invigorated to pursue their education, and their families rally around, recognising the lasting value of learning. Child’s Dream is an organisation tackling this problem head on. 

They have already etched significant milestones, with 327 schools standing tall in the Mekong Sub-Region. Yet, what truly sets their approach apart is the deep-rooted partnership with communities. Every brick laid and every classroom built is a testament to the synergy between them and the local leaders, ensuring the project’s success and sustainability. 

The active community participation during construction seeds a profound sense of pride and ownership, guaranteeing the infrastructure's upkeep in the long run. This is an infrastructural change and a socio-cultural revolution. As classrooms rise, so do dreams, hopes, and futures. Join hands in this transformative journey, ensuring that learning isn't a privilege but a fundamental right.
