Recently a teacher from Cambodia shared photos of a backpack a father made for his son

Even the basic things most of us take for granted, such as school supplies, can prevent a child from getting an education if they can’t afford to buy them.

To help kids get a better future, parents do their best in supporting their children’s pursuit of education. Recently, one exemplary parent became viral for his efforts.

When five-year-old NY Keng from Cambodia started going to a new school, his teacher Sophous Suon couldn’t help but notice his original backpack.

She told that a simple school bag cost 30000 riels ($7) in her area and there are parents who are struggling to afford them. However, NY Keng’s father who works as a farmer, decided to save money on a school bag and resorted to a much more creative option.

Using the last bits of raffia string, he weaved a beautiful blue backpack. Once Suon posted the photos of the schoolbag, it quickly went viral. People were impressed by the father’s dedication and creativity. “People said that it’s heartwarming, touching, cool and creative father, love this bag,” said the teacher.

Kind-hearted people even took it as an opportunity to offer help to the family. “Few foreigners asked for contact to send him the bags and my school leader already send his contact for them,” said Suon.

What a loving Dad. More parents should take the initiative in solving their problems like this man did. He's also showing a fine example to his young son.
