Cambodia's Children Education Fund, Inc.

CCEdFund will redevelop a professional class of leaders in Cambodia who will contribute to the peaceful economic, social, and cultural development of the country by providing access to exceptional educational opportunities. Education has been proven to be one of the most effective ways to promote develop, and Cambodia's educational system fails to educate approximately 40% of Cambodian children because they are forced to work, beg, scavenge, or sell themselves to survive.

Changing Lives with Scholarships - Siem Reap

4 CCEdFund Scholarship Recipients - Siem Reap
4 CCEdFund Scholarship Recipients - Siem Reap

Welcome to our new CCEdFund supporters!

Thank you so very much for your support of our new project on Global Giving - to provide scholarships to impoverished Cambodian students living with their families in Siem Reap. Because of your support, we are able to accept nominations from local partner schools and provide full scholarships to qualified students who live at home.

So far, during the 2013 - 2014 academic year, we are providing scholarships to four students to attend the Florida International School, one student to attend the International School of Siem Reap and the New York International School, and one student to attend ACE and the New York International School. Please note that we provide scholarships to many other students who live in children's centers but your support helps us provide scholarships directly to students who are able to remain at home!

In this report, we will share information about the four students who attend the Florida International School. CCEdFund partners with the Florida school because it is locally owned and operated and aspires to the highest level of academic study for its students in both Khmer and English education. It is a private school and so regular teacher attendance, high quality supplies, and academic rigor are ensured by the dedicated school director. CCEdFund is passionate about ensuring that our students receive scholarship that will allow them to study in both languages to ensure that our students are able to succeed in Cambodia upon graduation. To learn more about the school, please visit: http://floridaschool.webs.com/

The four students who you have helped to send to school attend seventh grade and study in both English and Khmer. They have excelled in their studies but their families are unable to provide tuition to the Florida school for them to study. So, the school director nominated them for CCEdFund scholarships. Once they receive scholarships, CCEdFund's students' records are shared and reviewed with us and additional support is provided as necessary. Given the widespread level of persistent poverty in Cambodia and the poor state of the public education system, access to quality private schools is necessary for students serious about changing their life paths through education.

So, thank you very much for sharing with CCEdFund to allow these students to study for a better future and a better Cambodia! We look forward to sharing more updates with you in the next few months as the academic year comes to a close.

Warmly,
CCEdFund Team

Giving Thanks ~ #GivingTuesday

Warm Thanksgiving Wishes to You!

From the CCEdFund family & scholarship recipients, we wish you the happiest of holidays and year-end festivities! We are tremendously thankful for your support these last six years and we look forward to continuing to change lives through scholarships. CCEdFund has been able to provide scholarships to ambitious but impoverished and/or orphaned Cambodian students because of your ongoing financial support.

As our previous scholarship recipients continue to attend our partner schools, we have exciting news: we are considering a new nominating partner organization in a rural area outside of Siem Reap. This school provides full scholarships to children through twelfth grade and they would like to nominate some of their graduating students for CCEdFund scholarships to universities. We look forward to sharing more details about this new opportunity to provide educational access for impoverished students!

In this season, we wanted to share with you that we will be participating in #GivingTuesday - a global day of giving to give back after a day of giving thanks and getting deals.

Annual Visits to Partners 2013

Somalin Showing Off Her Certificate
Somalin Showing Off Her Certificate

Hello CCEdFund Family!

Our apologies for a bit of delay with this report but we have been doing our annual partner visits and since we are wrapping the up, we wanted to share some highlights and some pictures! Jessica Garber, one of our longest-serving volunteers/leaders, has been in Cambodia for 5 weeks and visited our partner schools, partner children's centers, families, and a few nominated students. We are thrilled to share some of her notes on a few of our students:

Somalin - Grade 3, Siem Reap
"Somalin is doing very well. She is a happy, growing big sister who is very excited to welcome her new baby brother in a few months. Her English comprehension and speaking skills are excellent, as she was able to maintain a conversation and relate stories to me over a 10 minute period with ease. Her ability to write Khmer very clear and fluent, and she was able to give me a number of demonstrations of her writing and reading ability through reading a short story and writing a couple sentences that her father made only minor corrections to. She scored very well in her reading, writing and speaking skills in English, and her Khmer classes are going well as well. So the dual enrollment in both New York School and ISSR appear to be serving her needs very well."

Khouch, Sreyheng, Channa, & Tony - Phnom Penh, Cambodia
"I was able to spend time with Sreyheng, Tony, Channa, and Kouch. Each of them likes their current schools and wishes to continue in their studies. Kouch really likes studying at ICS International School and would like to finish her schooling there before going to university." These girls are attending different partner schools in Phnom Penh and are in middle or high school. Their academic records show continued progress and determination to complete their studies.

We will keep you posted as we evaluate nominated students and work with partner schools to find the best fits for their goals and abilities.

Have a wonderful rest of the summer! It is almost back to school time....

Warm regards,
Carrie and Jennifer
