While more Cambodian children are entering school –with primary net enrolment increasing from 87 per cent to 98 per cent between 2001 and 2015 (including private schools)–marginalised children are still deprived of their right to an inclusive and quality education. Children from poor rural families, ethnic minorities and those with disabilities are more likely to be excluded from, or not complete primary school.
In order to raise funds and build more schools in rural areas, Louisa Mak (Miss HK 2015 and AGS non-executive director), Bryan Pun (TVB host), Laurence Gribble (AGS founding director), and Danny Wang (AGS chairman) will cycle from The Peak on 12 January 2019 to Cambodia!
This challenge is to cycle 2510KM in 30 DAYS across:
They are very excited and motivated for this challenge and ready to face the fear of pedalling a heavily loaded bike for a month in the heat!
Accompanying the team on the one-month trip will be a TV film crew, who will be producing a five-part documentary covering our trip, the schools that will be visited en route and AGS School in Cambodia.
Our target for the whole project is to raise HKD $3 million, including $1.5 million from offline platforms & $1.5 million from GoGetFunding. If you believe in the POWER of EDUCATION to help end poverty and want to make a difference today, please support us!
