We will do it one by one, step by step". It all started with one student. Ponheary Ly, who served as a teacher and later tour guide in Cambodia, had a passion for education. Living a portion of her life in poverty, Ponheary knew the struggles that children in rural Cambodia faced when trying to attend school.
