Education Without Limit
Education Without Limit is an educational project of IWDC.
The story began more than 30 years ago when the Khmer Rouge
gained control of Cambodia. In an effort to rid the country
of anyone who could voice opposition to the regime, the Khmer
Rouge began systematically eliminating the educated citizens.
Among the thousands killed was the family of Katherine Ouk,
a public school teacher in Cleveland, Ohio. Her entire family
was murdered, many of them before her eyes.
While peace has finally come to Cambodia, education had not,
especially in the rural areas where Katherine grew up. In
the village of Kar Ko in Prey Phnow commune in the Pea Rang
district of Prey Veng province, there is a tiny, worn down
one-room building that serves as the school for two villages
and four-hundred children.
As a project of IWDC, Katherine has established EWL and made
it her mission to bring education to the village where she
grew up and where her mother now lies buried. The project
is in its beginning stages, with the land currently set aside.
The contractor has agreed to build and has provided plans
to build an addition to the current schoolhouse. However,
much work remains. Funding is needed for supplies such as
books, desks, chairs, blackboards, and other school supplies.
If you would like to donate to Education Without Limit, so
that the 400 children can have access to an education, please
go to IWDC donation
page and donate online or download the form and note Education
Without Limit on your check.
Thank you in advance for your support of Katherine Ouk and
her journey to bring education to her village in Cambodia
