The Tnol Trong village is home to the Bakong community. Many of the village's children have lost one or both of their parents. A large number of them lost their fathers while they served in the army. The most prevalent illnesses in the community are malnutrition, HIV, hepatitis, typhoid, tuberculosis and dengue fever.

Rice water and salt supplemented by the collection of frogs and red ants is the staple diet for many of the children in the Bakong community. Mothers are often unable to produce milk for their babies and are therefore forced to feed them only the water from boiled rice.

Despite these challenges the children are eager and willing to learn. It is our goal to provide them with a good education to help them overcome these challenges and help lead them to a bright future.
