In 2020, Cambodian Children’s Fund (CCF) received a second grant of $20,000 that was used to fund Keeping Girls in School: Removing Barriers to Education for Cambodia’s Poorest Female Youth project in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Their first grant was in conjunction with Global Development Group in 2015 (here). This program aimed to support 136 disadvantaged girls to gain access secondary education at CCF’s Toul Ampil (TA) School. The 100 Women grant was used to fund education supports including books, resources, uniforms, equipment and transport.
During the reporting period, even though Covid-19 disrupted activities, CCF achieved significant outcomes such as:
● 134 female students were kept in Education.
● 2 new female students enrolled in TA.
● The annual attendance rate for our female students at TA was 96%.
