Hi there! I'm an 8-year-old boy from the Trapeang Prasat region, way up north in Cambodia - a place full of greenery, rain and wild animals. I live in a small village with my two brothers, two sisters, and our loving caregivers. We all speak Khmer here. My favourite subject at school is national languages - I love learning new words. After school, I help my family by carrying water. My favourite playtime activity is zooming around with my toy cars.

Sadly, life here can be tough. Most families, including mine, farm but don’t own land and struggle to grow enough food. Many of my pals miss school to help out on the farms. We also have problems with things like clean water and good toilets. But guess what? Stuff's changing for the better!

Thanks to you and FH's help, my village is uniting and making a plan! Your sponsorship means I can continue learning at school, get regular check-ups, and my caregivers learn how to take even better care of us kids. FH's also showing us how to form farmers groups and save money. They're teaching us about farming, healthy eating, and how to work with local government.

So thank you for being part of our journey, and please keep me and my family in your prayers as we work towards a brighter future.
