Describe the need affecting community
How will this Advance project help to address the need?
GBGM/UMC will provide education opportunities for youth and children to attain high school, and college education especially those from rural villages of Cambodia. The church is doing its part in providing scholarships for the poorest of the poor to get education especially from the rural areas. We believe that by providing a child with a high quality of education, they will be able to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
