The Dropout Prevention Programme’s main goal is to reduce the dropout rate of secondary students in the Prey Chas community. Prey Chas was chosen due to its bad track record of keeping the students in secondary school, along with the lack of motivation/interest from the community for education despite the presence of reliable school infrastructure. Reasons behind a high secondary school dropout rate include students having unreliable access to school facilities, and a lack of understanding on the importance of education by the parents and community members.
