image001Empowering Youth in Cambodia (EYC) runs 4 schools/community centers in slums, serving over 600 students with educational programs.  Currently 30 students also receive direct support for their studies, mostly for university.  Additional students have applied for scholarships, and funds are needed to be able to support them. One student is who was just awarded a scholarship is named Mai and she just passed the Cambodian high school exam (only 40% passed this year!).  She plans to study social work and she says,

“I would like to say thank you to donors that help me with my study.  I hope to work with youth in need of assistance one day, including those in the countryside who don’t have many opportunities.”

Mai is very studious but also enjoys ultimate Frisbee, cycling, and wants to learn how to swim. We know that Mai will go on to do great things and are happy to be a part of her journey.

Please help other students like Mai achieve their dreams and support EYC’s scholarship students. To donate, please go to; https://secure.donationpay.org/villageearth/youth_cambodia.php

Additionally, we will strive to identify successful methods of community empowerment through political organization.
