Meet Ra, a young boy living near the Bark Angrout Village School in the Siem Reap province in Cambodia. He was hanging around at the playground of the school when he caught my eye. He kept staring at me while silently fiddling up a piece of plastic between his fingers. Ra can’t write or read and he barely speaks. His family can’t afford for him to go to school, so he can’t participate in the lessons or school activities. Still, he hangs around the playground almost every day watching the kids play from a distance.
