Dear friends and partners,
The COVID-19 pandemic has started our year with economic hardships in this land of sorrows. Despite the issues revolving around the pandemic our children have returned to school. Mann Tola, is 15 years old and lives with his family in Svay Rieng Province. His family has been in the Tabitha savings programs for 6 years. In that time, they were able to save for small business, raise animals such as pigs, chickens and cows. Tola’s sister and himself got bicycles so that they could go to school.
4 years ago, Tabitha helped to get a school for the village. Before that, school was held in a one room thatch building that was not very good. Each day the sun came through the broken thatch and on rainy days the students couldn’t go to school at all. The room was overcrowded as 634 students studied in that one room. The students found it difficult to learn very much.
Savings and Family Partnerships
The Tabitha WATER program runs in parallel with the “Community Development through Savings” program. This program enables families to have access to clean, potable water and to raise a family’s income significantly.
