Pacific Prime and Room to Read launches Literacy Program in Cambodia
We are excited to announce that Pacific Prime and a charity organization Room to Read has established a literacy program in Chhouk Primary School, Cambodia. The school currently has 353 children, but only 13 teachers. It is situated in the low-income province of Banteay Meanchey, where almost half of the population lives below the poverty line.
Both Pacific Prime and Room to Read share the goal of eliminating illiteracy in the world by creating child-friendly learning environments in primary schools. For this reason, Pacific Prime has decided to provide financial support for Room to Read’s project at Chhouk Primary School, which involves establishing a new school library, providing library management training, and delivering literacy instruction training for teachers.
Making wigs for children with cancer
Earlier this October, Pacific Prime Dubai hosted a unique team-building activity that was both charitable and enjoyable. In this activity, the team made 50 wigs out of yarn for children with cancer. Since chemotherapy treatments make scalps too sensitive for traditional wigs, yarn-wigs offer a comfortable alternative. The wigs also bring joy and laughter to children in Pakistan, Egypt, and the UAE by helping them enjoy a normal childhood through a difficult time.
In only a few hours, using only a few simple materials, Pacific Prime Dubai was able to contribute to a worthy cause and make a positive impact. Feedback from the team made it clear that the activity was a special and touching time that left them thinking of more ways they could give back while working together as a team. Stay tuned!
