Thank You Soroptimist International of La Jolla

The Reach for the Sky scholarship program started in 2010 because of the generosity of the Soroptimist International of La Jolla. This scholarship program provides financial aid to girls in middle school through college. The Soroptimist International of La Jolla continues to support the program and recently added scholarships for one university and one high school girl.

Chanthy Sovann, our first universtiy graduate

Dear Cambodian Village Fund Supporters:

The Reach for the Sky girls in Cambodia and I would like to thank you so much for supporting the Cambodian Village Fund. Thank you for helping all the scholarship girls study and get a higher education, and giving us the opportunity and ability to find good jobs. You have helped our commune by supporting Kaun Khlong Primary School and Prey Touch Secondary School. The free English classes at Kaun Khlong Village provide us with good opportunities to study English because of your kindness. Now a lot of children in our commune can speak English and want to study. And now so many parents allow their children to study. We are really thankful.

We wish all of you good health and happiness.

Love all of you,
Chanthy Sovann for all the Reach for the Sky Girls

Reach for the Sky is a scholarship program that helps girls stay in school. Less than half of the girls in rural Cambodia continue their schooling beyond 6th grade. The costs of books, school uniforms and transportation are beyond the budgets of many families. In addition, parents often need girls to help out at home with subsistence farming, child care and other activities to help make ends meet. With just a little financial help, girls can complete high school and even continue on to college. Girls are chosen based on their ability to succeed as well as financial need. We monitor the girls to make sure they attend school regularly and maintain good grades. Most of the girls in the program are in the top 25% of their class and have almost perfect attendance. Our hope is that these girls will graduate from college and come back to the village with special skills to bring about social and economic change. Already they are serving as role models for other children.
