To celebrate my three children graduating from college, last year I sponsored the purchase of desks that were donated to Taing Krosaing Junior High School in Kompong Charm Province, Cambodia, through the Golden Leaf Education Foundation. The desks are shown in the photo below. I am amused to note the students look like they are at the end of a long day and seem ready for the bell to ring ... similar expressions to those my kids have displayed in school photos at times.
