Fulbright scholar Prof. Fleming recalls the image of two young boys riding off on their oversized bicycles with their Dog Meets World photos in hand, from the S.O.I.D. (Supporting Orphans and Indigent People of Cambodia for Development Organisation) school for orphans in Siem Reap, Cambodia. While each classroom had a photo wall of the school’s children to attract donors, this was the first time the children had a photo made JUST for them to keep. He says he’ll never forget their smiling faces.
