You made Education a reality in 2011!

Thank you for all your support and generosity in 2011. We’ve had great success thanks to your belief in our programs; with your support we’ve helped hundreds of amazing youth realize the dream of education. You are:
 
*Supporting the University Education of five young women and two young men in Siem Reap, Cambodia through our scholarship program.

*Enriching the lives of over 400 villagers in Ban Navangtai in central Laos. Our school restoration project has already begun to greatly improve the quality of life in the village and will provide youth with greater education opportunities in the future. With continued support our vision is to help stimulate sustainable economic opportunities for local villagers through this investment in education.
* Allowing the dream of vocational training and scholarships for youth at the Landmine Museum, Siem Reap Cambodia. Two young women received sewing machines and vocational training for tailoring and sewing, while two young men learned the skilled trade of hair design and barbering. 
 
* Helping provide over 500 disadvantaged children a creative platform to foster and promote expression and self-confidence, through art, with our support for the Giant Puppet Project.
 
* Empowering over 600 youth at our VDCA supported free education schools! We are addressing the environmental and health issues effecting children and young people (HIV/AIDS awareness, general hygiene, drug abuse, child trafficking, pollution, climate change, global warming, environmental sustainability).
 
* Helping forcibly displaced Burmese Refugees with the resettlement process by providing computer training and access to educational materials and books. Project Enlighten continues its support of the Burmese Refugee Community Association (RCEA) in Houston, Texas, through RCEA's new initiative, the establishment of a Community Learning Center.

*When tragedy struck with the massive monsoonal flooding in SE Asia we were able to respond. You helped provide food, water and vital medicine to people in central Laos and just outside of Siem Reap, Cambodia, a rice bank was developed to provide rice during a critical food shortage.
With your continued support as we move into this next year, we hope to accomplish much more!
 
Thank you all so much, wishing you a happy and healthy 2012!
 
Asad & Olivia and the entire PE Team.
