UU Minister Founds Cambodian NGO

I’m flipping through Money Magazine at my relatives here in Virginia, and finding it quite interesting.  Stories on home remolding, college funds, planning for a new baby, and all sorts of other financial goodies.  As I skim through the middle, I think I see "Unitarian Universalist".  I pause, flip back and lo and behold, an article on retired Unitarian Universalist minister Frederick Lipp entitled "Making Promises, And Keeping Them" about his connection to Camobodia and the writing of a Children’s Book The Caged Birds of Phnom Penh

He went on to establish the Cambodian Arts and Scholarship Foundation.  Here is the Money Link: MONEY Magazine: The dream retirement: Keep your promises – Oct. 11, 2005.

The Cambodian Arts and Scholarship Foundation (CASF) is a US 501(c)(3)
nonprofit organization that is committed to improving the lives of
children in Cambodia through education. A particular focus is our work
with poor, at-risk girls who are, for a number of reasons, often denied
equal access to schooling. On the ground in Cambodia, CASF collaborates with local communities to identify potential students, provides financial, emotional and medical support to these students and their families,
and sustains this support for as long as the child wants to learn.
