Child workers to get free shcooling

Winrock International, a global NGO, expects to put more than 8,100 Cambodian former child labourers through school by 2011, Chea Kosal, the group’s director, said at a conference on Friday. Under the organisation’s Children’s Empowerment Through Education Services project, which began in September 2007, 4,086 children, including 2,247 girls, have been able to go to school. It expects to help another 4,164 children to benefit from the programme before the project winds up in 2011.
