PEPY - Empowering Youth
PEPY works with youth in rural areas outside Siem Reap, Cambodia, connecting them to the skills, opportunities and inspiration needed to reach their full potential:
• PEPY runs Dream Management classes to high school students in specific
target areas, introducing them to employment opportunities, scholarships and
offering life-skills capacity-building.
• PEPY’s Scholarship Program gives disadvantaged students access to higher
education by providing tuition, healthcare, mentorship, living allowance and
access to the Learning Center.
• PEPY’s Learning Center provides students with context-driven, criticalthinking-style instruction in English, ICT and wider skills (such as communication, program management, and teamwork) classes – subjects which are are highly valued by Cambodian employers, yet lacking in most public education settings.
To date: 147 PEPY Scholarships have been provided; 100% of PEPY Scholars who
have graduated have found skilled employment. Over 2000 high school students have attended our Dream classes, increasing university entrance rates at our target high schools and over 300 university students have received skills training at the Learning Center.
