You might think the man behind the Cambodian-American Foundation for Education is rich. He's not. CAFFE's founding director is a hairstylist in New York City who works six days a week in his own Lexington Avenue hair salon.
Marshall Kim, 50, survived the Killing Fields and escaped from the Khmer Rouge in 1979. As a young man, Kim spent three years at a refugee camp in Thailand and arrived in the U.S. at age 20 to take up his trade. When he became an American citizen in 1992, Kim was inspired to offer the children of his native land educational opportunities like those his own children received here in America.
"I can't afford to pay for all of these students out of my own earnings," he says, "so I started CAFFE as a way for others to help. Please help. In Cambodia a small amount makes a big difference."
