How have I been involved with the organization?
For eight years of my adolescent life I lived in the South East Asian country of Singapore. Since my family's first trip to Siem Reap in 2008, I have developed a true passion for CFC and for educational development in Cambodia. Throughout the 7 years I have been involved with CFC I have visited Siem Reap three times. Over the course of those three trips I have helped build recycle bins and study huts for the kids, I have helped feed the students early in the morning before their day at school, I have helped tile sidewalks, pave roads, teach students, and I have delivered hygiene supplies for the children. With CFC being such a big part of my life and seeing the first hand change that the organization has brought to Cambodia, when my family moved to Ann Arbor in 2014, I decided to start a new chapter here in Michigan at Skyline High School.
CFC Club at Skyline High School
With this branch of Caring for Cambodia being quite new, no big events or fundraisers have been established yet here in Michigan. Although our club is still relatively small, students involved at Skyline have traveled to two separate events in the midwest where we packed food for a broader non profit organization which helps a majority of CFC’s students in Siem Reap. In order to fundraise a significant amount of money to successfully complete a project on our trip to Cambodia this June 2017, a majority of events have been planned to be held this school year such as, our “Christmas for Cambodia” open house in December, continuing participation in food packing events, food sales, and a garage sale later in the year. Now you may be wondering, where is all of this fundraised money going? Is it funding your travels or specific work in Cambodia? All of the money that will be raised this year by Skyline High School’s Caring for Cambodia club will go directly to the purchasing and support of needed goods to successfully conduct our service project during the June 2017 trip to Siem Reap.
Through recent years in high school, I along with my fellow club members, have developed a deep passion for environmental sustainability and service. On our trip to Cambodia in June 2017, we hope to incorporate this passion into our work by being a part of a project relating to environmental sustainability. Although at this point in time it is too early to be 100% sure about what project we will be assisting with in June, some areas that may need support that relate to the environment are the making of recycle bins, work with solar energy usage, and maintenance of water filtration systems at the schools. Some other projects that we may assist with include work within the schools’ gardens, English learning programs and construction of playgrounds. We plan to help with any of these projects during our stay in Siem Reap from June 22nd-26th, 2017.
How you can help:
Our financial goal for June’s service trip is $5000, a number that will allow us to be very successful while in Siem Reap! To help out Skyline’s Caring for Cambodia Club you can donate any small or large amount on this fundraising page. We appreciate any and all donations!
Thank you so much for your support!
