Welcome to LIFT issue 58

LIFT loves Valentines day as much as the next youth magazine, but we were too busy investigating Cambodia’s schools and police force to give the day of love much attention. We hope you all found a deserving Valentine to spend the day with and if you didn’t, you’ll surely be luckier next year.

In this issue we have two features that are completely unrelated, but we think you will find them both quite interesting. Our cover story looks at the progress and potential pitfalls of projects working to connect rural students to the internet, and the vast academic and professional resources that it provides to users.

The second feature story poses the question “are police in the Kingdom protecting the people?” We all see police on the roads every day, but many people don’t know what their purpose really is. We look at how well law enforcement is really enforcing the law in Cambodia.

You will also find an email from Canada, a youth who has found success on a horse and, the coolest page around.
