Differentiating Amongst Charities
Today, the New York Times caries an article exposing the large number of unneeded orphanages in Cambodia, established not for the wellbeing of the children, but for profit of unscrupulous owners. In fact many of these “orphans” seem to be recruits, whose only education consists of being tutored on how to beg and manipulate donors.
This is a tragedy foremost for the children caught up in this industry, but also for the honorable charities who are actually doing good within the country and who carefully monitor how their funds are spent and the progress of their focus populations.
The Board of the Cambodian Village Scholars Fund wants everyone to know that we are 100% certain that the dollars our donors provide go directly to students’ education with not a penny to overhead or graft.
