The Branch Foundation would once again like to express our sincere gratitude to all those that have donated to this vital project. Your generous donations have enabled us collectively to provide the following to the shelter:
- Two months transport for a girl who is mute to reach her school in another district.
- Two months covering of costs for twelve girls to receive extra tuition and take exams.
- Eight bicycles
- Approximately one school year’s supply of school materials.
- Two months supply of pocket money for the girls to buy water & snacks at school
Here is a story about one girl you have helped empower:
Srey Leak is 16 but only in the 1st Grade at school because she had never been to school before she came to CCPCR. "I find school difficult, but not as much as it was when I first came. Luckily I get a lot of support and motivation from my friends and staff". When asked what she likes learning the most, she replied, "my favorite thing is learning about the environment and animals". Our interviewer asked her what she would like to be when she is older: "a teacher", she said.
My Thy, the Director of the Cambodian Centre for the Protection of Children’s Rights would also pass on his appreciation to you: "Thank you so much to all our kind and generous donors, we are so grateful for all of your help!"
Fortunately, due to a combination of committed funding efforts from other sources, altered project funding priorities and budgeting allowing money to go further, we have been able to reduce our funding target. So we are delighted that we are now even closer to our goal of providing the necessary funding required to help educate and empower all the girls. We hope that you can help us reach this target.
Please do share this project with your friends. Together we can make lasting and sustainable change!
