LWB Education Program
Our education program
LWB's Education Program provides access to education to orphaned and impoverished children who otherwise would have little hope of a brighter future. We're committed to helping as many children as possible achieve their dreams of learning. See our education program locations here.
- Believe in Me Schools
After learning that some children were unable to attend public schools due to living in extreme poverty or being born with medical needs, LWB decided to bring education directly to the kids. These schools serve children both in orphanages and rural villages and open their minds to the joy of learning. Learn more
- Secondary and Higher Education
We believe every child who dreams of higher education should have the opportunity to reach their full potential. LWB has provided both high school and college support to over a thousand teens from both orphanages and rural villages. Learn more
- Sibling School
In the rural Western region of Cambodia, which has few economic opportunities, adults in most families cross the border into Thailand to search for work, often leaving children behind to fend for themselves. LWB's Sibling School is a safe daycare program for infants and toddlers in a region known for child trafficking. Learn more
- Orphaned Student Support
Tuition assistance is provided for orphaned children in LWB's foster care program to attend local kindergarten schools. This gives children who do not live close to one of our Believe in Me schools the chance to gain the same educational opportunities.
Featured success story:
Peter from Cambodia
Peter is 18 years old and lives in the rural countryside of western Cambodia with his single mother and two sisters. Because of the immense poverty in this region, families often send their children to work instead of school. Over 95% of children here never graduate. Peter knew this pressure well, as his own sisters had dropped out at an early age to work in a factory. Our team kept encouraging him, however, that the surest way out of poverty is through education. Peter set a goal for himself to not only graduate high school but to one day attend university. He’d wake every morning at 5 a.m. to do odd jobs and help his mom before walking over an hour on muddy roads to the nearest school. He’d work again in the evenings and then stay up late every night doing homework and studying. We were honored to provide educational support and tutoring to Peter, and this determined young man became one of the few in his town to pass the national college entrance exam. Peter is now a first year student at the University of Management and Economics on a full LWB scholarship. He’s inspiring a whole new generation of children that with focus and hard work, they too can achieve their dreams.
