Collaborate, inspire and make double the difference!

PEPY helps students to dream big, arm themselves with resources and skills and create a brighter future for themselves through education.

By taking the time to read this you are already a part of the wider PEPY family and you can have an impact on what we strive to achieve. We are excited to announce that today is the start of our Annual Campaign. We have lots of interesting information to share with you over the next few months and we hope to hear from you too about your inspirational educational and career stories and what has influenced you.

Our campaign aims to raise funds and awareness and inspire our students through hearing from you. We believe that the students can benefit from learning about you wherever you are and whatever you do in the world. Whether you are in a city or a rural area, Cambodia or Colombia or you are a student or a CEO! Students will gain an appreciation for the various successes, challenges and lessons learned that happen throughout life. Similarly we believe you can learn from and be inspired by the PEPY students too in this reciprocal learning exchange. We need you to be a part of this to share our information, donate, encourage others to donate, and share your dreams and experiences alongside PEPY students and staff so we can all learn together about how to make our futures brighter and inspire one another.

Over the coming months we will be telling you more about our current programs and inviting you to share PEPY information with your contacts. PEPY currently runs three main programs:

  • Dream Class – where young students are encouraged to dream big about bright futures and are connected to the resources to make this a reality.
  • The Scholarship Program where we support students from Kralanh in their higher education at university or vocational training.
  • The Learning Center which supports our students through extra soft skill classes such as ICT, English and Youth Empowerment classes that concentrate on presentation skills, confidence building and problem solving.

This year’s annual campaign seeks to be collaborative, so every member of the wider PEPY family can get involved, we want to raise awareness, share and learn from one another. Most importantly we need to raise funds to keep these programs running and continue to support the education of young Cambodians. Please get involved and support us wherever you can.

Your funds can make double the difference – we are lucky enough to have an anonymous donor who will match up to $25,000 of funds from new donors that are received between 1 September and 31 December 2014, giving this campaign a huge additional impact.  It would be great if you could donate and encourage your contacts to also – the funds you contribute will make a huge difference to the PEPY programs and Cambodian students.

With our matched funding now is the time to make double the difference and help young Cambodians reach their dreams through education, skills and empowerment! Donate today and spread the word!

Thank you, the PEPY Team!
