A Tribute to a Visionary Leader’s Legacy

In honor and celebration of our late friend, colleague and leader, Eileen Yee, who unexpectedly passed away last year, Discova has set up an education fund in her name. Eileen was known for her bright pink hair, her infectious smile, her relentless positive energy, and most of all, her unwavering passion for educational travel and our local communities. As General Manager for our Education Travel Team, she continuously inspired us to do more, to do better, and to create lasting impact.

Our Mission

The Eileen Yee Education Fund will help build up individuals in our local communities by supporting their continued education and aim to reduce high school drop-out rates in communities in Cambodia and Vietnam.

Educational Empowerment for Disadvantaged Students

The Eileen Yee Education Fund through its scholarship grant aims to support students from low-income families considered as financially disadvantaged, in securing education opportunities, and obtaining a better education and employment in their respective community.

How it Works

The scholarship grant will provide financial assistance to students, enabling them to successfully complete their three-year high school education. For as little as US$200 per year, students can receive access to all the materials and equipment they need for school, including a bicycle, a backpack, a uniform, and all the stationery they require for their studies.
