For the students who do have online access, CCT has been training public school teachers to deliver online learning using Facebook Messenger, Telegram and Zoom. And crucially, CCT has ensured year 12 students have access to computers so they can complete their final exams online. CCT have identified 140 children in Battambang who desperately need financial support to resume their education. With basic education critical to the long-term safety and self-sufficiency of young Cambodians, CCT urgently needs to raise a total of $35,000 to ensure that no child gets left behind.
As a brand founded on the pursuit of a full and meaningful life, THE UPSIDE believes deeply in the power and beauty of education. A love of learning, an openness to ideas and the capacity to problem solve is what made it possible for founder Jodhi Meares to translate her idea into reality. Access to education inspires confidence, security, self-sufficiency and joy, and it is every child’s birthright. It is from a place of compassion that we seek to use creativity and collaboration to resolve this crisis affecting young Cambodians. Because before they can dream a brighter future, these children first need the tools to build it.
