Sport and school a bright future
In the Netherlands, the children have been to school for several weeks. Not all children are jumping every day to go back to school. Nevertheless, education is the basis for a bright future. Thanks to Tirza and SCCO, Aone has the opportunity to go to school every day
In the Netherlands, children go to kindergarten from the age of four, and this is even mandatory from the age of five.
In Cambodia, many children only attend public primary school from the age of 6. Children from disadvantaged communities, such as Andong, where parents sometimes have limited access to education or training, do not attend pre-primary education.
The importance and impact of reading; a source of hope and confidence.
In the Netherlands, we do everything we can to stimulate and enthuse the young generation to read. This is further stimulated by the national library, which offers free membership up to the age of 18.
Access to the library is also very important for the children of the partner organization SCCO.
