Venerable Lorm Loeurm
Venerable Lorm is a Buddhist monk who believes every child has a right be educated.
Lorm was born in 1979 on the very day of the fall of the Khmer Rouge and overcame all the odds. Too poor to attend school, he joined the monastery in order to get an education. Through incredible perseverance, he finally achieved his dream of graduating high school at age 28. He went to work for LHA so he could help give back to others, and he quickly moved up the ranks and now leads LHA in their mission to help the poorest of the poor. He knows education changed his life and he wants every child in Cambodia to have the same opportunity.
