If the children can’t get to classes, a project in the rural areas of Cambodia is showing how the lessons can be brought to them.
Tuk – tuks, the rickshaws motor used in the entire south-east Asia, the delivery of text books and lessons to remote villages in a scheme known as “the Book Book of Tuk-Tuk”.
It can be difficult and expensive for students to obtain an education in rural Cambodia, and a school in Takhmau, south of Phnom Penh is experimenting with taking lessons directly to them.
Kuma Cambodia school, a school founded in 2012 by the Norwegian Association for Private Initiative in Cambodia (NAPIC), it was decided to dispatch the libraries-on-wheels to remote areas to bring books to children in rural areas.
The Book Book of the Tuk Tuk project, working with the heads of the people to encourage participation, send tuk-tuks staff of Cambodia volunteers, many of which are outside of the school itself.
That educate families about why it is important to send children to school, as well as addressing social issues such as HIV awareness and concerns about games of chance.’The cycle of poverty”
Volunteers Pring, a 21 years of Cambodia, explained: “do Not let the children go to school is common among the poor.
“Parents do not understand the value of education, the family income is very low and therefore the children need to work or care for siblings, or parents suffer from drug or alcohol addiction”, says the Middle.
“When the children are not sent to school are more vulnerable to exploitation and to be involved in drugs or crime. Without access to education that remain in the cycle of poverty.”
The tuk-tuk volunteers teach children math, how to draw, read, sing, and tell traditional Cambodian stories.
Although libraries offer access to literature, and their advice, their main function is to encourage parents to send their children to school.
Seavsean, a 10-year-old Cambodian girl, lived under a sheet of plastic with his parents and brother in a rural village in the province of Kandal.
His father has played away from the family, revenue, leaving his mother to sneak out at night to steal rice to feed their children.
But after participating in the program father in the Book Book of Tuk Tuk, Seavsean the father stopped drinking and got a job. Now, living in a brick house, and Seavsean assists the school in Kuma Cambodia.
“We believe that parents have more knowledge, hope, and motivation to help them change their destructive behavior – such as gambling, drug abuse, or domestic violence – and break the cycle of their children,” said Pring Means.
But the Book Book of Tuk Tuk is not the only room of take to the road to get to the children.Teaching English by video
In Indonesia, a lack of qualified English teachers means that many of the students of the future prospects of employment are limited. Children in low-income countries in rural areas have little or no access to English language instruction, while unreliable, expensive internet access of the standards of online learning.
So three organizations, Oxford University Press (OUP), the car group IndoMobil, and WE have a teaching network Eleutian, combined forces to kit trucks with satellite technology, the linking of Indonesia students with US-based teachers.
The trucks are driven to the low-income communities across the country, park in any open place such as a playground and set up.
The side of the truck folds down to reveal a large TELEVISION screen, the shadow of the sun and the rain, and students to learn from OUP of the curriculum of a teacher at the front of the class in real time of the united states.
“The dominance of English is increasingly important in developing countries, says OUP Joseph Noble. “This is particularly true in Indonesia. However, many students are falling behind”.
Since its creation, the TeachCast project has reached more than a thousand students, and has plans to expand its current fleet of 15 trucks to 500, with each truck of the teaching of 150 students per day.
