THE STORY:

Dear Friends,

I'm Dan, and I will be attending the Bishop's School Cambodia trip during spring break of 2016. I am individually trying to raise $1000, but our team’s goal is to raise $30,000 for the Cambodian Village Fund (CVF) which supports many disadvantaged people in Cambodia. All donations will go directly to the CVF as our generous families or Bishop’s financial aid (given to those students who qualified) will be covering the cost of our travel. This trip brings a unique opportunity for cultural exposure, understanding, and empathy to my peers and me.   

The CVF Reach for the Sky Scholarship program educates 26 girls from low income families with a commitment that once accepted as early as middle school, they will continue to support each girl until she graduates University. These young women are dedicated to their education, immensely grateful, and hard working. The younger girls in the village are now studying even harder in school in hopes they will someday qualify for the program. This small amount of money ($500 for an entire year) changes their lives and has a ripple effect throughout the community and country. I truly cherish the cause of increasing rights and education for women in countries like Cambodia. A major key in helping developing countries progress is educating young women. Women are more likely to pass on the benefits of their education to their children, families, and countless people around them and thus future generations of Cambodians. Helping these girls is the first step in the great effort of aiding Cambodia to heal  from the devastating aftermath of the Khmer Rouge, when approximately 1.7 million Cambodians were killed or starved to death and the brutal regime devastated the county’s culture, economy and spirit. Education is the key for this beautiful country with so much promise to progress as a nation. Also, I will be travelling to the small rural village of  Battambang, where the Cambodian Village Fund has built a school. I will help set up the new library and the computer lab, along with an internet connection, which they currently don’t have. The Internet will allow access and freedom to explore information like never before. For the children and the community, it will open up a whole new view of the world. I am most looking forward to working with and connecting one on one with the young children in the village. I will be teaching students ESL (English as a second language) and perhaps will learn a little Khmer from them. Thanks for taking the time to visit my Crowdrise page. Please follow the link above to learn more about the Cambodian Village Fund and the important work they do! I greatly appreciate any support you might give.  Aw Kohn!!!  (Thank you in Khmer)
