Promoting access to quality education for children and youth across Northern Cambodia.
Year on year our University scholarship program continues to grow. This is testament to the success of our high school and early years programs. This year PLF took on twenty new University students and placed two more students in Vocational training school. The majority of these students will attend the top Universities in the country in the capital, Phnom Penh.
This past school year marked more accomplishments than we can fit into one post, but there is one particular story of resilience that sings to us, and that is the story of Koh Ker Village’s first ever High School graduate, Channy.
“This summer my sister and I volunteered again for the Ponheary Ly Foundation. This marks our 4th summer as volunteers, something that our family has been doing for the last 10 years. This summer we wanted to continue some of the teaching we had begun over the last few summers and also try some new ideas!”
This year will be the first year that an entire graduating class of Koh Ker Primary School alumni will continue onto High School in Siem Reap. But in order to truly know where they are going, you must first understand where they have been.
“We will educate our children. We will do it one by one, step by step.” -Ponheary Ly
