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.
Ciarán Bauer is Chairperson of DPETNS, who are our partners in Ireland. Ciarán has chosen a fellow Irishman as his inspirational quote.
It's great to see all the 'likes' from our new facebook friends in Ireland and everywhere else. Go raibh maith agaibh.
As October's giving week draws to a close we want to thank everyone who has donated and spread our word. Without donations PEPY wouldn't exist and nor would our programs. Our Annual Campaign is still running and you can donate at any time. We will be having another focussed giving week in November so think ahead and get planning for what you can do to help raise funds – organize a coffee morning, get involved in a sponsored run or chose an activity of your own. Thank you all!
PEPY's giving week is still in full swing. Please donate and making double the difference to us.
PEPY would like to say a big thank you to our former staff member Choch Cho. Recently Cho raised money for our annual campaign by taking part in a Khmer boxing match. Cho won the boxing match and his contribution to our annual campaign will support some of PEPY's Programs.
If you want to follow Cho's lead by doing an activity and donating to our annual campaign please follow this link.
Cho wrote us this lovely card when he presented the money to us. Well done Cho.
