Geographic areas served: Cambodia

Mission:
After thirty years of war and a genocide at the hands of the Khmer Rouge, Cambodia remains an impoverished country that offers almost no educational opportunities to impoverished students.  These students cannot afford to attend public school, but those who can afford school are in overcrowded classrooms for approximately 2 hours per day.  CCEdFund expands educational opportunity to impoverished students by providing scholarships for them to attend exceptional schools within Cambodia. While recent economic growth in Cambodia and the creation of a democratic system of government has expanded opportunities for some, many Cambodians have little to no access to public education due to poverty.  Further, there are exceptional schools in Cambodia that provide progressive, child-centered educational experiences to students whose families can afford the schools.  CCEdFund provides similar educational opportunities to Cambodian students who have exhibited dedication to their studies by providing scholarships to these exceptional schools.  In doing so, CCEdFund is promoting peaceful economic, social, and political development in Cambodia where there is a paucity of education professionals (due to the Khmer Rouge genocide).  After completing their education, our students commit to working in the public interest in Cambodia for a minimum of two years.
Results:
CCEdFund is providing 22 impoverished or orphaned Cambodian students with scholarships to exceptional schools for the 2010-2011 school year.
