Help These Disadvantaged Girls Complete Grade 10 Of High School
Thank you so much to everyone who has given to make the girls' dream of an education possible.
Kalentea, Banteay Meanchey Province, Cambodia
Girls, O'embel High School (Grade 10)
It is now four years since these six young Cambodian girls (Theara, Ra Youksy, Nern, Bol, Sehya and Rith) were all faced with dropping out of school because their families could not afford to continue with their education. I still remember after we first raised the money for them to continue on and Chhunly went out to the village to tell them and their families that they could continue their education. For these girls education is a dream they never thought possible, and they are each the first in their families to ever attend high school.
This year all the girls passed their grade 9 state exam which is required to continue on to grade 10. They have all put in a huge effort to try their hardest and attain the best results possible. Chhunly shared some of the moments as the girls received their passing grades and there were many tears from both the girls and their families. One of the students Theara shared her grateful thanks to us and her grandma for not giving up on her education. She was happy in tears for passing the grade and moving forward to next school year and she committed to everyone to try even harder for the next school year.
Thank you so much to everyone who has given to make the girls dream of an education possible.
For a cost of US$800 per student we can fund their Grade 10 of high school next year (total of $4800 for the 6 girls). This includes school registration and fees, school uniforms, school shoes, books, supplementary classes as well as food and rice for the year.
