Who will you be helping?
This is Pita. She is one of our students who participated in a BEST workshop at her school. Pita is a 4th grader. She lives in a village in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Who and Why?
Pita likes playing with friends at the playground and she loves her little brother very dearly. She enjoys attending school twice a day.
Pita's dream is to become a teacher and serve her community by improving the conditions of her village.
This is Pita's 92-year-old great-grandmother. Survivor of the Civil War in Cambodia, she suffered an empty stomach until 40. Even her daughter, Pita's grandmother, was threatened by death for eating raw rice while being forced to work in the fields by the government. She later gave birth to Thom, Pita's uncle, in a tree hole to avoid the bullets during the war.
These difficult conditions served negatively towards their oral health as her grandmother has never brushed her teeth and began experiencing chewing issues at a young age.
Pita, now a student and missionary of BEST, will become the first generation in her village to develop good oral habits and create a new way of life.
Unlock Pita's, her village's, and similar communities' potential by first giving their children the freedom to smile.
Not all children have this freedom. You can change it.
