One year ago, a group of impoverished Cambodian children did the unimaginable. They left their families and their tiny village, and went away to school. In the remote Cambodian town of Srayang, they lived and studied in dorm houses. They were clothed and fed. PLFC paid their way.
Now, a year later, the kids are thriving. We’ve seen just how healthy, happy, well-fed, and successful they are. They are getting an education. And they are beginning to understand what that means — the power it will give them to return home and lift their families and their community out of gut-wrenching poverty.
A year later, they are full of hope and determination. But they are just getting started. This fall, they are heading back to classes. They need PLFC to stay with them.
We hope you can help.
