Due to several donations Expert-Exchange was able to provide much needed assistance to two families in Tapang, Cambodia. This project was very rewarding. Our mode of transportation was not ideal for traveling 25k, but we were able to get the 20 kilos of rice, school supplies, and a bicycle to Tapang all by motorbike!!!
The background stories in this community are powerful and Expert-Exchange will be doing long term work here. The majority of the families are extremely poor. The main source of income is migrant construction work, which means that the children only see their parents a few times a year. Not getting into details to much, but migrant construction work is very dangerous and low paying. The attitude and drive of the parents is very inspiring to see their hard work and determination for their children's future. Expert-Exchange will always work and support communities who have the drive to work hard and see the next generation become more successful with job opportunities via education.
Veha whose mother works construction, takes care of his 3 other siblings on top of going to school each day. His father passed away and his mother is the families only source of income. She makes $4 a day and desperately wants her children to be able to get an education to have a good job in the future. Expert-Exchange provided school supplies, rice, and a bicycle for Veha and his family.
Thatt whose mother works in Thailand doing construction lives with his grandmother. Thatt only gets to see his mother twice a year. Expert-Exchange provided Thatt and his extended family with rice and school supplies.
