Student Assistance Program
This Life Cambodia's Student Assistance program comprises of 4 elements; Light Up A Life With Solar, Pedal Out of Poverty, Student Sponsorship and the Internship project. These four project areas are designed to assist scholars to not only successfully complete their schooling, but also to thrive at school.
Light Up A Life With Solar: The provision of solar lamps or lamp kits, to help extend light hours in the evening and increase daily productivity, in terms of school work for the child and household activities for the family
Pedal Out of Poverty: A major factor influencing the high dropout rate between primary and secondary school is transport. Some of our bicycle recipients need to travel up to 10 km each way to the closest secondary school. TLC provides a second-hand bicycle and lock to each selected child. Students are responsible for maintaining the bicycle in working condition.
Student Sponsorship: The aim of the program is to alleviate the financial burden associated with schooling, therefore improving the access to education for poor families. Currently TLC provides scholarships to lower and upper secondary school students who have either dropped out already or would not have continued to the next grade due to the associated high costs.
Internship: A TLC Internship is a two-year opportunity for two recent high school graduates, from underprivileged backgrounds, to receive higher education through on the job training and university education. Interns receive training in language skills, computer skills and community development while participating in This Life Cambodia work.
