Stories of Students, Teachers, and Community Members
Fifteen-year-old Binsa* from UWS Kalleri School has turned her grief from her mother’s death into a lifelong determination to improve access to health care in rural Nepal.
Sophea* is 11 years old and studies in Grade 3 at UWS Ta Lart Thmey School. The school is located in Ta Lart Thmey village in Stung Treng province. The village is located on a river, so many community members rely on agriculture and fishing to support their families.
Hon* lives in a remote village in Northern Cambodia. Waking up at dawn, Hon starts her day by helping with chores, cleaning, cooking, and washing her clothes in the nearby river. She then gets ready for school and meets up with her friends from her village. Together, they walk for 15 minutes to UWS Bak Kae School.
