Leaving no one behind — Cambodian teachers deliver lessons to homes as digital gap threatens students’ rights

Sen Vanna, a primary school teacher in a rural area in southeast Cambodia’s Tboung Khmum province, travels to teach his students at their homes every day after schools have been closed to curb the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Ministry of Education has encouraged students to study through provided online platforms or TV channels; however, Vanna said students in his area, about 67 km west of the Tboung Khmum provincial town, have difficulty accessing both the internet and TV channels.

With the advice from the provincial education department, Vanna and other teachers at the Hun Sen Chheuteal primary school in Peam Chileang commune of Tboung Khmum district, since earlier this month, began to travel to students’ homes to deliver lessons.
