In March First Lady Michelle Obama was on a tour of South East Asia promoting the Let Girls Learn initiative. Her itinerary included a visit to Siem Reap, Cambodia where she talked with seniors in one of the local high schools. In addition to attending high school, some of the girls receive more schooling in English and computer skills at a separate school run by HVTO (Homestay Volunteer Teacher Organization). A large number of these students come from poor farming families in communities surrounding Siem Reap, and they are unable to afford even the low $400 per year tuition at HVTO. So, for the last few years, the Rotary Club of Healdsburg has sponsored five students, who are doing remarkably well. So well, in fact, that two of the Rotary sponsored girls, Savang and Sokhang, were invited to meet with Mrs. Obama. They talked about the daily challenges of helping their families, traveling fairly long distances to get to the schools, and their dreams of becoming successful in the growing economy in the Angkor Wat area. Students in Cambodia have to overcome many hurdles to reach that brass ring. 95% of the children in Cambodia enter primary school, however only 20% graduate from secondary school. This statistic makes the achievements of girls like Savang and Sokhang even more remarkable. The Rotary Club of Healdsburg is proud to help them achieve their goals.
