Cambodia Children's Education Fund (CCEdFund) is an excellent organization that provides meaningful and sustainable assistance to the Cambodian population by providing scholarships to orphaned but promising children. I have worked with the organization as their campaign coordinator so that we could raise enough funds to send 2 more children to school. The way that CCEdFund handles the donations they receive and how they interact with their scholarship recipients is truly unique. I would really like to see them expand their efforts as the year comes to a close and to provide more scholarships to more promising young Cambodians.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The Cambodian children I have seen been given a chance to fulfill their academic potential no matter what their interests.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have them expand their efforts!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the fact that the people involved are extremely dedicated to their mission, and that the stories of the scholarship recipients are readily accessible.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very friendly and very dedicated to their mission.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change so many lives and the future of Cambodia.

Ways to make it better...

I were able to go to Cambodia again!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

making sure that people understand the history of Cambodia, and why the children there should receive the scholarships.

One thing I'd also say is that...

they can change the future of Cambodia with enough funding.

I strongly support the work of CCEdFund which is changing the lives of children in Cambodia, 22 children at present. I have promoted the organization to numerous individuals because I share the founders' belief that to create the leaders of tomorrow in Cambodia one must plant the seeds in the minds of the youth there. To read the accounts of the students' accomplishments can literally bring tears to one's eyes. To see where those children live and how little they have tugs at one's heartstrings. I hope to have the opportunity to travel to Cambodia one day and meet some of these children. They are Cambodia's future and I applaud the work of the CCEdFund to help them.

The Great!

I have read the accounts of the children's progress in school and I have spoken to one of the founders of CCEdFund about the children's progress.

Shortly after the organization and qualification of Cambodia's Children Education Fund, Inc. as a charitable entity its purpose and vision was explained to me by one of its organizers, Carrie Garber. She spoke from first hand knowledge of the poverty and societal cruelty to the youngest and most vulnerable members of the Cambodian population. I was immediately impressed with her understanding of the situation and the need for immediate action. The record of the growing number of children that the Fund has helped educate gives me hope that Carrie and Jennifer's generation understands the need for international charitable involvement to turn back poverty and ignorance. In these difficult economic times I have personally budgeted funds to ensure that the education of the children of Cambodia continues through the efforts of Cambodia's Children Education Fund, Inc.

The Great!

From online communication from Carrie Garber I keep informed of how many students are helped by the Fund, where the students attend schools, and how long it will be until they successfully complete their education.

My personal experiences with CCEdFund have mostly taken place vicariously through Carrie Garber, one of its co-founders. After learning that Carrie was running an NGO while also juggling law school, I became interested in what it was that compelled her. When she explained that the organization was founded to help Cambodian trash pickers, I became even more interested. I had heard of the Khmer Rouge at that point, but I didn't fully appreciate the devastation that Cambodia continues to suffer as a result. Carrie patiently explained the dire need of many Khmer children, and quickly sold me on CCEdFund as a way that I could help these people so far away. I have attended and participated in a handful of fundraising events, and I remain a consistent donor. This has only been bolstered by my recent trip to Cambodia. I traveled to Cambodia last month, and I was truly saddened to see so many starving and despondent children in every city I visited. Though I was there on vacation to celebrate a recent personal accomplishment, I was humbled by the Khmer people and their story. Seeing it all in person, from the killing fields to the remaining catastrophic effects of the Khmer Rouge, has only strengthened my loyalty to this organization. CCEdFund provides for me a special opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way, where I can be certain that any money I donate will be used first and foremost to help the Khmer children. For that, I am extremely grateful.

The Great!

After meeting so many Khmer children in need, knowing CCEdFund is there to improve the lives of even a few is comforting.

I've been very impressed with the work they do to both raise funds in the US and actively establish ties to schools in Cambodia by visiting and interacting with the teachers and school leaders there. I've discussed multiple times with the founders and leaders of CCEdFund the advances the children they support have made. I think they've made great progress towards improving their system of identifying promising students and transitioning those students into schools that are at the appropriate level for them. While there might previously have been an issue with this, they've since adapted the system to include an intermediate level so their support achieves the greatest success for any individual student.

My sister first told me about CCEd Fund, and being a NYC teacher I quickly became intersted. As I learned more about the organization and the amazing people behind it, I am inspired to work harder at my job everyday. It is difficult for me to look beyond the immediate problem of the achievement gap in our country, so I am very proud to support such an important organization that is looking to help solve a global problem.

Tell your story here and help others understand this charity I had the pleasure to participate in the charity benefits held in New York City & Greenwich, CT which were wonderful presentations on what amazing work the charity performs. The stories presented by its co-founders Jen Kinberg & Carrie Garber always give a real sense of what tough situations the children in Cambodia are presented with and natural struggle to aspire for a better way of life. I can't wait to participate in further events and opportuniies with CCEF in the future.

We discovered CCEdF though our daughter-in-law who who saw the plight of the poor in Cambodia, recognized the essential role of an excellent education, and decided to do something about it. CCEdF provides scholarships to children of promise who in turn will help their fellow countrymen rise up from poverty. The latest recipients were children living in a garbage dump. They were selected from a number of fine candidates. The glad news is two human beings have been given a chance to develop, to evolve, and to help others in return. The sad news is that so many could not be helped due to lack of resources. The young women who founded this charity are passionate educators who contribute their time to identify interview,and select worthy recipents. They also make presentations, maintain the website, and raise the funds to get the job done. The program has Zero overhead; ALL funds go directly to scholarships. The need is great. The program is excellent. We are glad to suppport CCEdF. Pam and Jim Leahy

This is an amazing charity helping to give Cambodia a chance. After the Khmer Rouge, the culture structure of the country was demolished, and education was largely lost. Slowly, Cambodia has been rebuilding with the help of others. Cambodia's Children Education Fund helps make that happen. It is an unbelievable program for the country and has changed many children's lives.

The Great!

I have been to Cambodia and have seen the children this organization helps. The children are bright, and hungry to learn. They want to be a part of Cambodia's future.

You're never going to find people who truly care more about the mission of their organization than the people at CCEdFund. They always continue to push the bounds and never let themselves be satisfied with just a comfortable base of students. It is amazing to see them grow the organization year after year, and I can't wait to see where they go with things in the future. Way to make a difference!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the students grow as they learn.
