The Legacy of Shirin and Pandju Merali

Part 3 of 4: Partnering for Girls' Education - Cambodia

Cambodia Girls' education is critical to breaking a vicious cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and abuse that traps many girls and women in developing countries. In Cambodia, where girls and women are vulnerable to being trafficked into the sex industry and other exploitative situations, education is key to reducing their vulnerability and giving them options for a better life. Building on its longterm partnership with the Cambodian organization KAPE, The Asia Foundation and the Shirin Pandju Merali Foundation are providing four-year university scholarships to disadvantaged girls in Cambodia.
