The Ponheary Ly Foundation Educates Cambodian Children

Wee Are the World: $20 Sends Cambodian Child to School

Americans worry about their kids becoming the best and the brightest, but for some Cambodian children school isn't an option. Education is free, but many impoverished families cannot pay the $20 a year for their youngster's uniform and supplies. CNN reported:

Cambodia is one of the poorest nations in the world, where about 40 percent of the population of 14.7 million live off less than $1.25 a day, according to World Bank.

The Ponheary Ly Foundation is trying to change that. Started by Ponheary Ly, a Cambodian teacher and tour guide, and Lori Carlson, a Texan who met Ly while vacationing, the charity benefits thousands of children.
