The Covid situation in Cambodia has been gradually improving. We are pleased to report that Kuma has finally re-opened its doors this month. With country-wide vaccination rates now above 85%, the prime minister lifted all Covid restrictions in Cambodia effective November 1. That means Kuma is back in business!
Gradually the students are making their way back, step by step. Nine students returned on November 4 and the numbers have been steadily increasing each day. As of this week, there are now 30 students who have returned. Those numbers are expected to continue to rise.
To be sure, there are still Covid controls in place: class sizes are smaller and movement around the school is limited. But the energy levels are sky-high. The excitement is also bolstered by the arrival of 19 new students who have joined Kuma's fast-track program this year.
