A Boy carrying a Raffia-made school bag catches the Netizens’ attention

  • Netizens are amazed on a kid’s bag from Cambodia.
  • The bag is woven from raffia strings.
  • Due to no money, the kid’s father wove the bag as opposed to buying a new one.

Rapper J. Cole once said: “There’s no such thing as a life that’s better than yours.” Many would disagree, but many would also say that it couldn’t be further from the truth.

Anywhere, poverty will always be encountered. These people struggle more than the average individuals, financially.

Those who live below the poverty line need to put in more efforts to accomplish their goals in life, and are fortunate to even be able to put their children through school.

In Cambodia, a child caught the attention of the Netizens. Sophous Suon posted photographs on facebook of a kid carrying a bag that his father made for him.

The bag is woven from raffia strings and is colored in blue. It has two straps and a buckle. The finished product is cleanly done and is durable enough to carry several books.

Netizens admired how the bag came into being since they found out that real story behind it. The father only made the bag because he couldn’t afford to buy a brand new one for his son.

“I want to buy a bag for him to know where he is. Thank you!”

“Very touching… the bag is the most valuable gift ever from his father for him to go to school. He will understand his father when he grow older. Good father !!! “

“Simple but beautiful”

“Touching! Thank you for showing a great example.”
