Mae’s Dream: A Community Learning Center in Rural Cambodia

When we began our work in rural Cambodia, we met with many of the teens and young adults in the region to discuss their personal dreams for impacting the community. One of them, Mae, was a senior in high school at the time. She recently graduated and is now in her first year of college on a full LWB scholarship. Mae is passionate about making a difference for the younger children in her village, many of whom live in immense poverty. She shared with us that she dreamed of creating a community center which would be a gathering space for all the children and youth to come together for positive and encouraging activities.

Fostering Creativity in Cambodia

When LWB opened our new Believe in Me schools in rural Cambodia, we knew that art, creative writing, and music needed to become a regular part of the curriculum. Most government schools use a rote memorization system, and many of the children had never created artwork before or even seen a crayon. We’re excited to be making an investment in the arts, purchasing guitars and other instruments so the children can begin music lessons at an early age.

Ary Village: A New School Program in Cambodia

2018 is just getting underway, but we already have wonderful news to share about our third and newest Believe in Me school in rural Cambodia, located in Ary Village. What makes our Believe In Me Ary Village school a very exciting project is that it is in partnership with the local Department of Education. Several months ago, we learned about an old school building which had fallen into disrepair in a region hit hard by poverty. This area has a similar demographic to both our Rangsei and Sokhem Village schools in that many of the children are “left behind” when their parents travel into Thailand searching for work. Malnutrition and illiteracy are sadly far too common.

Grace: One of Our Heroes of 2017

This summer, we introduced you to Grace. Grace is a 14-year-old girl from Uganda who was suffering from abdominal tumors so severe that she could barely sit up. Grace had to drop out of school, and when we learned about her plight we were determined to help her. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we were able to raise the full amount needed for Grace’s surgery, and after spending many weeks in the hospital in Kenya, she recovered and came home, dreaming of a way of getting back to school to finally get an education.

Heath’s Desire to Learn

Last month, one of our Cambodia team members met a young boy named Heath. Heath is eleven years old and has severe cerebral palsy. He always wondered what was inside books and wanted to learn to read so badly. However, Heath has never been able to attend school due to his special needs. The very first thing we arranged for Heath was new crutches to help him with mobility, but then we began talking with his family about how it could become possible for this bright little boy to finally go to school.

Giving Grace And Her Family The Gift of Hope

Many of you know the story of Grace, the 14-year-old Ugandan girl who had surgery for abdominal tumors this summer.

Thanks to your amazing support, Grace has now returned to school. In fact, your generosity allowed us to enroll not only Grace – but also her younger brother and sister.
