Thank You From Our Cambodian Teens: Hope Through Higher Education

Two weeks ago, we asked for help from our community to send a cohort of 22 Cambodian teens to college.  Our community came through with flying colors!

In the particular rural area where LWB is working, poverty is most people’s reality.

Only 18% of children in this region graduate from high school, and less than half of those will successfully pass the college admission exam.
