Len is a 13 years old boy living outside Siem Reap. He is facing his last year in school.
With the help of the Cambodian Buddhism Association for Vulnerable Children (CBAVC) he has been able to get an education over the last 6 years for free. He now struggles with the truth of having to stop his schooling in order to help provide for his family.
In Cambodia and many parts of Asia there are monks who beg for their daily food and needs. The CBAVC is an association of monks who turned the purpose of their begging to providing for the education of children and betterment of the area.
