Review for Cambodian Village Scholars Fund, Rancho Mirage, CA, USA
I support the Cambodian Village Scholars Fund. Their mission is helping Cambodia's minorities in their decades-long recovery from the Khmer Rouge genocide, as well as encouraging cultural diversity in modern Cambodia. During the late 1970s, the Khmer Rouge annihilated about half (roughly 125,000) of all the Cambodian Cham, most of their cultural/religious leaders and their cultural and historic materials.
This grassroots organization contributes 88% of its resources directly to their recipients! The Cambodian Village Scholars Fund supports the preservation of their culture and provide basic skills for a new generation to participate in the global community. I appreciate the opportunity to give back in a direct and immediate way that is highly effective.
