HerStory Campaign

We were so very fortunate to be selected as one of only four schools in Cambodia to participate in the HerStory Campaign, a worldwide effort undertaken by Global G.L.O.W. (Girls Leading Our World) and LitWorld to empower girls to realize their dreams. The HerStory Campaign is active in 26 countries. We are honored to be the only village school in Cambodia to be chosen. 

Perhaps the most wonderful honor: Teen Vogue magazine chose our school from all of the schools in all 26 countries participating in the HerStory campaign to be featured in their article celebrating the International Day of the Girl held on October 11. You can read the article here:

The HerStory Campaign works to change the lives of each girl in school by

  • Launching literacy clubs that foster the power of story
  • Training mentors to lead clubs and support girls’ learning journeys
  • Providing resources for educational achievement such as books, technology and sanitary supplies
  • Engaging entire communities to support girls as they learn and grow
  • Leveraging social and print media to intensify the power of girls’ voices for change
  • Enrolling allies in the movement to promote gender equality

If you want to help fund art and girl empowerment programs at our school, please click on the button at the bottom of this page.

Note: 100% of all donations will be used to fund projects and programs for village students, alumni, teachers, and families. No funds will ever be used to fund administrative expenses or board member travel and expenses. 

You can double your donation, if you work for a company with a Matching Gift program, by applying for a matching donation from your company. We are registered with most of the organizations that manage matching gift programs for companies (e.g., benevity, Your Cause, Network for Good). 

(Left & center right) HerStory mentors use art to help each girl find her voice and express her aspirations. (Center left) These girls are reading and creating art after school on their own. (Right): The campaign helps each girl to discover her uniqueness and breaks down barriers, leading to true lasting friendships.

We discovered during our first visit in 2007 that students love to draw. So, we always brought art supplies when we visited. Sadly, the Cambodian curriculum does not provide for art classes.
