Chad and I traveled to Cambodia in March. Actually what took us there was that I was photographing a wedding in Thailand, which I will definitely be blogging soon. So we took the opportunity to continue on to Cambodia for some adventure. One of the coolest things we did on our travels, was visit The Happy School in Phnom Penh, which is supported by the wonderful people at ACE – Australians for Cambodian Education. They were such a cool bunch of kids and the school is aptly named “Happy”. Our only regret is we didn’t have more time to spend with them.
Cambodian children face great obstacles in gaining an education. Happy School is a community run school that provides education to children who otherwise wouldn’t have access due to poverty.
This series of photos focuses on the students in their daily school life. This is the time of day where they can learn and play and carry out their rightful role of being a child.
