Sao Sary Foundation began its first campaign in 2006 to fundraise for 55 bicycles to distribute to 55 poorest Cambodian kids in Kampong Speu Province and our last Campaign was on November 27, 2018 when we distributed 600 bicycles to Cambodian poorest students in one of 25 provinces of Cambodia. We are increasing the number of distributed bicycles and children who receive them every year. Around 2,700 bicycles have been purchased and distributed so far. One used bicycle made in Japan is worth $45 US dollars. You make a difference by sponsoring a bicycle now.
Although Cambodia’s cities continue to grow, about 82 percent of the Country’s population still lives in rural areas. Village life is harsh, and most families do not have access to basic facilities. Public school remains 7 kilometers away from home which requires children to cycling back and forth every day 6 days in a week. A poor family has at least three school-age children that they have to allocate at least $111 US dollars per child per year for having a bicycle, school uniforms, footwear, school bag, study materials and school supplies in addition to $192 US dollars as daily pocket money allocation while they can’t afford to cover all ongoing costs. You can join hands with the Sao Sary Foundation to protect the poorest children by offering them opportunities to stay in school.
