What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Female college, female high school

There's no other program like this in the world. See Paupers To Champions link at www.cambodiacorps.org.

We have 130 secondary school students in our child's shelter on the northeast frontier. This aspect of our program needs to expand rapidly.

Twenty shelter graduates attend universities and reside in our Indigenous Student Center in Phnom Penh. These graduates will provide the upper tier of the educated leadership for the Montagnards of Mondolkiri Province.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To educate Cambodia's ethnic minority Montagnard homeless youngsters as teachers and advocates to stop the destruction of their tropical forest ecosystem and culture.

Provide ethnic minority Montagnard highlander students of Mondulkiri and Ratanakiri Provinces, Cambodia with the support necessary to earn degrees at domestic universities to:

a. Qualify for NGO and government employment in their home provinces to improve those services for their people.

b. Acquire human and indigenous peoples rights for their people and stop the destruction of their tropical forest habitat through advocacy in international forums, e.g., the Asian Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Network (AITPN) and Tebtebba.

CCi directors and officers serve uncompensated. There are three of us and we're all Vietnam War veterans with long Montagnard histories. Tommy Daniels is Chairman, President, and Treasurer does most of the work from his home office in the USA. Max Lund and Rich Webster are also Directors, assist with fund raising, and along with Tommy make trips to Cambodia at personal expense to monitor the program and make decisions.

Our in-country Program Services Manager and only employee is a Cambodian national whose paid $475 monthly. He's been with us for seven years and does an excellent job. We also have a few American supporters who live in Cambodia permanently and assist from time to time.

The primary source of funds for western NGO's operating in lesser developed countries are grants from international agencies and large foundations. However those which support development in Cambodia restrict funds to elementary through middle school grades in accordance to the UN mandate of "Education For All." Funds to support university education must come from individual donors.

Through the years we've managed to create a support base of individuals who make small to modest donations each year. Most are veterans and former civilian NGO workers from the Vietnam War. Counterparts, a fraternal organization of former military advisors and civilian officials from the Vietnam War, usually provides $4000 annually. Asia Connection, Inc. also supports us. All of the aforementioned are in the 60-80 age group and due to illness, death, or other reasons we lose some each year. Replacing them requires a consistent fund raising effort. Moreover the number of Montagnards who graduate from high school increases each year placing more demands on our university program. Kindly consider our cause.

We began the university program in 2003 with a goal of 30 graduates in 10 years. That goal was achieved in 2012. All graduates have returned to their home provinces on the northeast frontier and are pursuing the CCi goal through employment with other pro Montagnard NGO's or in provincial government positions.
