In his article "COVID-19, the biggest crisis in education, One Hearta solidarity platform that publicizes responsible actions and initiatives, talks about Aide et Action's intervention in Cambodia: to limit the effects of school drop-out.
"On the pedagogical level, Aide et Action, which fights for quality education for all, decided to intervene to compensate for the closure of schools. In order to ensure a certain pedagogical continuity, its teams took advantage of the distribution of hygiene kits in remote communities to join books for the children. This way, despite the fact that school was stopped, the children were able to continue to educate themselves and learn. In addition, the association has developed free tools. The "Khmer learn" application set up in Cambodia, for example, offers children access to books and educational games in Khmer and in the languages of ethnic minorities.
