Our mission is to invest time and resources in young people in Cambodia, working with them to connect them to the skills, systems, and inspiration necessary to achieve their goals, raise standards of living, and improve the quality of education in their communities.
Our vision is a future where all young Cambodians are empowered to achieve their dreams. We believe that the changes we want to see in the world are only possible if we invest time in people and in the power of individuals to make positive changes in their communities.
Through our Education Programs, which collaborate with government-funded schools, and our Community Development Programs, working directly with children and families, PEPY strives to enable access to quality education, with a focus on leadership, creative learning and critical thinking.
We believe that sharing our activities, the challenges we face and being honest about the failures we've experienced as well as the successes will help improve the work of the industry. Stay up to date with everything that is going on in the PEPY world!
At PEPY we believe you have to learn before you can help, and that a wider understanding of Cambodian contexts and related development issues is essential before trying to support change. We are always looking to learn from new partners, projects and resources as we grow and develop.
