Project Report | Mar 21, 2023
Two new graduates !

By Barbara Rosasco | Secretary & Treasurer

TWO NEW GRADUATES !

In late  2022 Ms. SR and Ms. S both completed their requirements for graduation with a Bachelor's degree.  Ms.. SR has a degree in English and Ms. S has completed a degree in  Inernational  Relations. Both  of these young women now have dreams of attending  graduate school 

These very accomplished young women have both had to  overcome significant   challenges in  their lives. Many of our other students,  in act,  have also ucceeded despite obstacles such as  extreme poverty, illness, loss of one or both  parents, physical  disability and more. Despite these challenges, the students in our program had set their "eyes on the prize" and continued, over the years to move forward, breaking through  every sterotype of  " disadvantage". Hard work, tenacity and sometime a bit of luck has enabled them to move forward toward  a life changing achievement of a college degree.

Cambodia, is ranked neart the bottom of ASEAN countries for higher education among its population.

According to various 2020  articles including materials from The World Bank,it is estimated that in Cambodia

  • 93.5% of children enroll in elementary school  with an estimated  9% drop out rate
  • 56 %   of children enroll in middle school with an estimated  20% drop out rate
  • 25 %   of children enroll in high school with an etimated 12% drop out rate

It is estimated that there are approxixmately 45  colleges and college level schools  in Cambodia and an estimated annual enrollment that  totals  between 4,000 - 4,999 students.

Our  program, started in 2013 , has remained small .because  as a small foundation without an endowment or professional fund raisers on staff, we wanted to be  cautious not to begin something  long term, like a college program, unless we felt reasonably confident that we could sustain  the journey of our students toward completing their degree.

The credit for the hard work that has led to the many  achievements of our students , belongs,  of  course , to the students themselves. The debt of gratitude and our profound thanks  for the 494 individual donations that, over a 10 year period  raised a total of  $49,213.47 on GlobalGiving, goes to you, our generous donors.

Please join us in congratulating our two newest college graduates !
