Empowering Youth in Cambodia Scholarship Program

A microproject by Village Earth


In Cambodia youth unemployment and low levels skills lead directly to serious societal problems, but the recipients our EYC's scholarship program are not only exceptions to this all too common scenario, they are showing an example to other youth and children from slum communities that through education they can break the cycle. Please support the students that EYC is working to build up and make leaders.

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.


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.
