Recently a teacher from Cambodia shared photos of a backpack a father made for his son
Getting an education is one of the most important milestones of a child’s life which has a crucial role in determining a child’s future. However, according to the United Nations, almost 60 million primary school-aged children aren’t in school. One of the most common reasons is poverty. There are many children throughout the world, who, instead of going to school, have to work to support their families, collect water or look after their siblings.
Even the basic things most of us take for granted, such as school supplies, can prevent a child from getting an education if they can’t afford to buy them.
To help kids get a better future, parents do their best in supporting their children’s pursuit of education. Recently, one exemplary parent became viral for his efforts.
When five-year-old NY Keng from Cambodia started going to a new school, his teacher Sophous Suon couldn’t help but notice his original backpack.
Kind-hearted people even took it as an opportunity to offer help to the family. “Few foreigners asked for contact to send him the bags and my school leader already send his contact for them,” said Suon.
