“The police came to my house to search and then brought me and my boyfriend to court. I was very afraid when they told me I would go to prison. But I was happy when the organization [Save the Children] came to help me. The organization [Save the Children] taught me and other prisoners about child’s rights.”
“Now the organization [Save the Children’s partner] helped me. I have school materials and uniforms. I am very happy to go to school. I want my parents to be together so they can take care of me. I always attend school regularly.”
“Save the Children is very pleased to be working closely with the Ministry of Education Youth and Sport and the Prudence Foundation on this important project."
“Now, my friends stop beating me. I do not make any mistakes with friends anymore. I am very happy because my teacher has stopped blaming me. He explains better.”
“Now, I am very confident and can present issues of children clearly”, said Bros. “During my free time outside of school, my voluntary job is to facilitate club meeting every month, collect and present children issues and suggest for inclusion into the agenda for commune meeting”.
“Before, I did not have money to pay for the treatment of my family. Health was not important to me, but working hard to earn money was a priority”, said Chroeuk Chanthet, 33 year old farmer, a mother of three children.
