Deep in the countryside of northwest Cambodia, two Srayang Dorm students are about to do what no one has done in their town before–open a computer school.
Read a blog post by O Yura – one of the students PLFC supports in Cambodia. Yura is from the remote village of Koh Ker – she is flourishing at Srayang, learning English and computer skills. Her progress is inspriring.
An excerpt from the monthly food report sent to us by Farida — what the students buy at the market and eat every day.
PLFC is working together with PLF (US) to support students from 3 elementary schools -‐-‐ Tchey, Knar and Wat Bo – as the students move on to secondary school. PLF (US) has supported these students at elementary school. But as the students move on to secondary school it has only been able to provide uniforms and supplies. These scholarships will fund their tuition as well. The scholarships are $25 per month per student.
The Ponheary Ly Foundation Canada (PLFC) is giving rural Cambodian girls and boys an education. The cost to house, feed, clothe and educate each student is $800.00 per year. The return on this investment is immeasurable.
These students are the country’s future. An education will give them the power and determination to help pull their families and their communities out of poverty. It will help the crucial work of giving their country a future.
