Whilst waiting for more funds to come in so that the work could commence, another donor from Australia gave me the full amount estimated to finish the work, $13500 AUD. … Continue reading »

Two new classrooms for Jesus School, Phnom Penh

We’d thought for a while about helping to add more rooms to the Jesus School in Phnom Penh. It was built to provide an education for the kids from the nearby rubbish dump, which has since closed, but student numbers have grown to 250 now and the original four room building is too small. The … Continue reading »

Paleriders School Update

It has been quite a mission getting a small school built in a village close to where I live in Cambodia. I was approached by the people who built my house back in June 2011, and asked if I could help them get money to build a school. I went and had a look at … Continue reading »

Past volunteer projects

This project we did back in February 2010 was very enjoyable, satisfying and was greatly appreciated by the recipients. Helping Hand Orphanage in Kampong Cham had a piece of land across a deep gully which runs into the Mekong River. To access the land they’d built a bamboo bridge, but it wasn’t accessible in the … Continue reading »
