We also help kids get back into school. This is Yorn he is older than Yon (see the next post) but we are waiting to get his birth certificate made as he is not sure how old he is. He was at school then left to work on the streets as a scavenger. He is going back into grade 2 but he is also attending the ROLC school and so will also eventually be able to be in a grade more suitable to his age. Of course this will take a few years but thanks to everyone’s support I know we can help him achieve this.
Another job ROLC does is help children register at the local state school. This is Yon today registering at school for the first time ever. He is ten years old and will go into grade 1. He is also attending he ROLC school and with our help he will be able to jump grades. Next year he can go into grade 3 and the year after into grade 5. So he will eventually be able to be in a grade compatible to his age and ability. He will have to sit exams to get into grade 3 and then grade 5 but our program is set up to help him do this. We wish Yon all the best and we thank you for your continued support of ROLC.
Happy New Year everyone! Well after yet another couple of weeks school closure, due to Covid fears/outbreaks in Cambodia, we are back open and with three new students. With more coming soon. We are looking forward to a successful 2021 with hopefully fewer interruptions.
