Girls, O'embel High School, Grade 7

Pov, Youksy, Nern, Bol and Sehya are young girls from disadvantaged families in Kalentea Village, Cambodia. The girls all dropped out of primary school or were at risk of dropping out because their families couldn't support them. With the amazing support of Well Directed donors they all finished primary school and achieved remarkable results finishing near the top of their classes.

The girls now have the opportunity to be the first in their families to attend high school. The high school 'O'embel' is too far from their homes and they will stay in a dormitory near the school. Their classes will include Math, Chemistry, Physics, Khmer Literature and English.

A message from the girls: "We would like to say a deep thanks to supporters who help us to get the opportunity to continue studying at O'embel high school. We will be in grade 7 for the next school year. We would love to wish you to be healthy and wise. Merry Christmas!"

For a cost of US$800 per student we can fund their first year of high school next year (total of $4000 for the 5 girls). This includes school registration and fees as well as food and rice for the year.
