2014 CASF Overview

The Cambodian Arts and Scholarship Foundation (CASF) was founded in 2001 by Frederick Lipp, author of The Caged Birds of Phnom Penh. CASF is committed to improving the lives of children in Cambodia through education, working with poor, at-risk girls who are, for a number of reasons, denied equal access to schooling.

Yen Neat just finished Grade 12 and passed the National Examination. Her favorite subjects are math, biology, chemistry, Khmer and English. Her parents are farmers, who make palm sugar and raise hens. Neat wants to be a pharmacist.

We at CASF have been hard at work this year to solidify and strengthen our role in ensuring an education for the students we serve in three provinces of Cambodia and in Phnom Penh.

A generous grant from the Arthur B. Schultz Foundation allowed us to expand the program, adding twenty high school and six university students to CASF for the 2015-2016 school year. We are expanding our English Language teaching, both in the provinces and in Phnom Penh, through a collaboration with the Peace Corps.

For almost fifteen years, CASF has concentrated all our efforts towards our mission, that of educating our students. We can now boast of over sixty-five graduates, who are working in law firms, hospitals, NGOs, businesses, and in other professions.
