Mission Statement

The Cambodian Arts & Scholarship Foundation is committed to improving the lives of children through education, and focuses on poor, at-risk Cambodian girls who, for a number of reasons, are denied equal access to schooling. CASF works closely with local communities to identify potential students; provides the financial (direct cash scholarships), emotional and medical support necessary for them to attend school; and sustains this support for as long as the child wants to learn.

Program 1

Overseen by a small all-volunteer Board of Directors in Portland, Maine that fundraises and assists with logistics, CASF is run by Cambodian woman (Program Coordinators) in Phnom Penh who manage each Provincial Program. These Program Coordinators work closely with program-specific Educational Counselors who live near the students and who meet with each student several times a month (see attached organizational chart). Our foundation currently provides scholarships and emotional/medical support to approximately 200 Cambodian children who live in six Cambodian provinces and attend 25 different schools
