Make College Possible for a Cambodian Woman
Change the future. Help a woman in Cambodia attend college!
The country of Cambodia is unique among developing nations in that its educated population was systematically targeted and killed in the 1970s, during the Khmer Rouge regime. To fully recover from this devastating time, education and the empowerment of women is critical to the recovery of the country.
Colleges in Cambodia do not provide housing for their students. While male students can live in Buddhist monasteries free of charge, this option is not open to women. So, for the simple reason of not having a place to live while attending university, most young women in Cambodia cannot access higher education.
To solve this problem, the Harpswell Foundation has built two dormitory and leadership centers for college women, the only such facilities in the country. There, eighty young Cambodian women are provided with a place to live so that they can attend college in Phnom Penh.
You can help! This Gift That Gives More™ provides one week of room and board, college tuition, English classes, and leadership training for one student.
The Harpswell Foundation's mission is to empower a new generation of women leaders in Cambodia and the developing world. The foundation provides education, housing, and leadership training to young women in Cambodia with the belief that educated women with leadership ability constitute the most powerful force to bring about positive change in developing countries.
