Opportunity Cambodia

Today, Sochea is 16 years old. 8 years ago Sochea was in grade 3 and doing well at the local school.  She loved learning and knew that she desperately wanted to stay at school.

However her poverty-stricken mother had 5 children whom she could barely feed, let alone send to school.  Sochea was needed at home to cook and look after her younger siblings.

What a waste of ambition and talent in a country which sorely needs educated young people to take their place in developing and leading their communities.

Her plight was bought to our attention and after discussions with her family, we arranged for Sochea to enter our education program, which has supported her through primary and secondary school.

After doing well in exams at the end of secondary school she told us that she really wanted to complete high school so that she could go to university and study to become a maths teacher.

We provided Sochea with a scholarship to enable her to board at our Centre in Siem Reap and attend high school.

Sochea is a wonderful young woman with ambition and ability in spades.

She knows that we will support her through her university education.

Opportunity Cambodia was established to enable children like Sochea living in some of the poorest rural villages in Cambodia, to have an education and the opportunity to live their dreams.

Please help us to give more children like Sochea the opportunity of an education and a brighter future.
