Review for Ponheary Ly Foundation, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've supported Ponheary and Lori's work for several years; traveled with my husband to Siem Reap and did an art exchange and English class in one of the schools, as well as sent funds on a regular basis. Education is Cambodia's future and this is hands on work changing the lives of children and families for the better. Cambodia is somewhere you can truly make a difference one-on-one. I have worked with many non-profits over the years and have never found one where the mission is so well served and the funds better allocated to actually making a difference. There is no fluff here -- and if you're lucky enough to visit in person, it will change your life.

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

Siem Reap and Tchey School

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

Ask them what they need to take their work to the next level -- only because the need in Cambodia is so great, not because they are not already doing so very much.
