CASF is committed to improving the lives of children in Cambodia through education; a particular focus is on work with poor, at-risk girls who are, for a number of reasons, often denied equal access to schooling.
CASF collaborates with local communities to identify potential students, provides financial, emotional and medical support to these students and their families,and sustains this support for as long as the student wants to learn. CASF has offices located in Portland,Maine USA and Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
CASF is overseen by a small all-volunteer Board of Directors in Portland, Maine USA that fundraises and assists with logistics as well as visiting the programs regularly. CASF currently provides scholarships and emotional/medical support to approximately 100 Cambodian students who live in four Cambodian provinces and attend 25 different schools.
Vutheary Kong, current coordinator in Phnom Penh, manages each Provincial Program in Kandal, Svay Rieng, Kampong Cham, and in Phnom Penh. The Coordinator works closely with Educational Coordinators who live near the students and who meet with each student several times a month. The foundation also supports 30 University students. The CASF staff, generous volunteers, and hands-on board members are deeply committed individuals who give faithfully of their time and expertise, so that over 87% of the funds go directly to support the students. We pay no salaries in the United States.
