Immediate Inspiration: The Activism of Courage Fund Cambodia by Amelia Miller (A’22) Jul 01

When I heard from the Courage Fund Cambodia (CFC) in May that I had been chosen to be an intern with their organization, I was ecstatic. Earlier in the year, when I had looked over the list of Oslo Scholars internships, Courage Fund Cambodia had stood out to me immediately. I have always been driven by the idea of working to improve and expand human rights in countries across the globe.

CFC is an organization that seeks to aid activists and families of activists who have been wrongfully imprisoned for speaking out against Cambodia's government. With the donations that CFC receives, it helps to pay legal fees, medical bills, and educational expenses for these activists and their families. This was a mission I knew I wanted to be involved in— it not only helped victims directly, but also promoted a message of peace, democracy, and freedom.
