Cambodia's Children Education Fund, Inc.
September 29, 2010

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.
