Cambodian street children hitch a ride to the opening of a new Youth Centre run by the Cambodian Children's Trust (CCT). The CCT Youth Centre was accepting one hundred new kids into its scholarship programme, which enables impoverished children a chance at a bright future. Hitching this ride and getting to the centre early and getting one of those scholarships may be the single most important event in these kids lives. It was literally the ride of a lifetime.
