Our Biggest Fundraiser so Far This Year!

By Lily | Program Manager

Dear Supporters,

Our work supporting classroom renovations has seen our biggest fundraiser so far this year, as well as plans in motion to renovate the play area outside one of our main centres in Kampong Cham.

Over the last three months we have been working hard to build funds for our students in the local English centre. This centre is designed for students from the most underprivileged areas across the province of Kampong Cham. In this centre, they can learn English, Khmer and Maths with no cost. Each day we lead English classes to enhance our students’ opportunities for skilled employment or higher education.

In April we led our most ambitious fundraiser yet in which our five volunteers raced each other to the Cambodian southern islands, competing a series of challenges on route. These ranged from reaching peculiar and undiscovered landmarks, to spending the least money whilst travelling. Our volunteers raised nearly $1000 in just one week.

These funds will be spent renovating the outside area of the English centre. Our students currently have no space to play and no opportunity to sit out of the sun during the hot season. This play area will include a shaded area with benches for students to enjoy quiet time out of the sun, as well as a flat, grassed area to play games safely.

With a shaded area outside, our students will be able to learn and study in this area and in the main classroom thereby doubling our class size. This will also allow for two classes to be taught simultaneously, enabling our students to receive double the teaching time.

We are looking forward for these renovations to improve our students quality of both learning and play and look forward to beginning renovations next month.

With Gratitude,
