Challenge

During Cambodia's genocide during the Khmer Rouge (1975 - 1979) most educated people were killed off leaving the country lacking the necessary resources. Cambodia needs young leaders who care. This project will provide monthly support to 6 grade-12 students, 8 first-year university students, and continued support for 10 university students to continue past their first year.

Solution

By investing in young people to get higher education they will almost certainly break the cycle of poverty, and will be resources to develop their country equitably.

Long-Term Impact

With education comes the ability to access resources and greater self-learning, so a lifetime of growing and building their country.
