Pon - a new scholarship recipient in Phnom Penh
Hello CCEdFund Family!
We can hardly believe that we are half way through March and that the end of the 2011-2012 academic year is around the corner. With your support, we were able to send twenty-two amazing but impoverished Cambodian students to school this year in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, Cambodia!
Currently, GlobalGiving's representatives are visiting CCEdFund's partner schools and children's centers to learn more about our amazing students and where they study. They have promised a full report on the teaching and learning that they see, but in the meantime, we thought we would catch up with you.
We have had an incredible academic year that began with a new partnership in Siem Reap. The New York International School is now where twelve CCEdFund scholarship recipients are studying a full Khmer curriculum in addition to lessons in English. We are eager to evaluate this partnership this year and we will keep you posted. In Phnom Penh, our four students at Beltei continue to rank in the tops of their classes for grade six. Pon, one of our newest scholarship recipients, is thriving in her new school funded by a CCEdFund scholarship. With your support, we hope to provide four additional scholarships next year. However, we only provide scholarships when we are financially certain that we can assist the student through the completion of his/her level of study.
