Extract from the editorial by Gilles Delecourt, Managing Director International of Action Education: "Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in South-East Asia. A recent and dramatic period in its history saw the physical elimination of 90 % of its teachers. All knowledge was suspect and could cost lives. The mere fact of wearing glasses suggested that you were an "intellectual", and therefore someone to be eliminated.


The dynamism of the teachers and parents is now a source of encouragement for all those who are involved with young people who are eager to read and learn. Discover in pictures what makes Cambodian schools exemplary and rich, whether they are inclusive, rural, for street children or in the difficult context of shantytowns".
