Photo Gallery: Americans and Cambodian-Americans Raise Funds for Siem Reap Schools

Over one hundred Americans and Cambodian-Americans joined a fundraiser and auction organized by non-profit Caring for Cambodia Thursday in Washington, DC, to support 21 schools in Cambodia's Siem Reap province. Jamie Amelio, founder and CEO of CFC told VOA Khmer that the funds collected from the May 4, 2017 event will be used to continue to supporting the organization's education programs and teacher training, recognized by Cambodia's Ministry of Education. Caring for Cambodia was founded in 2003 to support the education of over 6,000 students in Siem Reap and to improve the quality of teaching.
