Project

Prek Svay Lower School is the only school on the island of Koh Rong (Cambodia's second largest island). Children attend from around the basin for half a day, six days a week.

Because of the school's remote location and the low income levels of the pupils' families, many struggle to find the money for very simple school supplies.

Those supplies provided by "Pack for a Purpose travelers" will make an immeasurable contribution to the learning capacity and academic well-being of the local child population.
