Sponsored Students

Through our sponsorship program, poor students are able to enroll in Christian and private schools. The public school system caters to those who have money and the poor are not properly educated. The majority of poor students drop out of school by 7th grade.

Vitcheka’s story

Nine years ago we met a teen named Vitcheka while teaching English at our home in Cambodia.  She was the typical poor young teen.  Like the majority poor, she had dropped out of school by junior high age because public school is not free in Cambodia.  She longed to go to school like the other richer teens.

We began sponsoring Vitcheka in 2007 in a local Christian school.  She was at the top of her class and graduated with honors.  She is now running a college and career dormitory for Remember the Poor.  She is married and having a baby later this year.  We have since helped sponsor 80 other children, teen and young adults for full-time or part-time schooling.
