Help These Disadvantaged Girls Continue Their Education
With your help these girls can continue their second year of high school
Kalentea, Banteay Meanchey Province, Cambodia
Girls, O'embel High School (Grade 9)
Pov, Youksy, Nern, Bol and Sehya are young girls from disadvantaged families in Kalentea Village, Cambodia. This year Rith also joined the other girls in high school. It was Rith's first year in high school and she received a 'Certificate of Appreciation for Outstanding Students'. An amazing achievement!
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 this year they attended their first year of high school with excellent results.
The girls are the first in their families to attend high school. The high school 'O'embel' is too far from their homes and they stay in a dormitory near the school. Their classes include Math, Chemistry, Physics, Khmer Literature and English.
A message from Pov on behalf of the girls: " My name is Pov Theara. I am so excited. I will be in grade 9 next school year and I deeply thanks for your great support to study. Finally, I wish you good healthy and may God bless you."
For a cost of US$800 per student we can fund their second year of high school next year (total of $4800 for the 6 girls). This includes school registration and fees as well as food and rice for the year.
