Last year, I was looking for a new opportunity to serve, in a way that felt inspiring and meaningful. When my friend Alisoun told me that she had committed to building a school, it felt like a great fit! I am excited to be a part of the efforts to make this new school possible, and to witness the impact that it makes within the community in the future!
With me is a beautiful team of socially conscious business owners and volunteers (in the UK and US), and we have come together to raise funds to build a school in Cambodia. We understand the importance of education and its role in improving lives and circumstances in the lives of the children and their families.
Our goal is to raise $60,000, or approx £45,000 over the course of the next year. Classroom of Hope will use these funds to build a child-friendly school–working in partnership with the local community, and with agreement from local officials to invest in providing paid teachers so the schools are sustainable. They also provide extra training to teachers to ensure the children in these remote areas receive a good quality education.
We're raising funds over twelve months to June 2019 and I'm looking forward to going out to Cambodia to see the school we've built and meeting people living in the community. You can find out more about the project HERE.
All funds raised will go towards building the school and associated community projects. I’ll be paying for my trip to Cambodia myself.
Please help us help a whole community of young people for generations to come by giving whatever you can to our fundraising campaign.
Donations are in sterling. If you live outside the UK, £10 = US$13 = €11 (approximate values as at December 2018).
The more people that know about our fundraising, the quicker we can build the school. So once you've made a donation please spread the word by sharing our fundraising page with your friends and family.
Thanks for your support!
