New Lives from the Gift of a Well!

Image
As we come to the end of 2012, we send our deepest thanks to everyone who made our work in Cambodia possible this year.

Clean water is something that most of us take for granted. So is education. And food for our families.... so many blessings that had been an almost impossible dream for many Cambodian families... until you helped them create a new quality of life.

This is the time of year when charities everywhere ask for a year-end contribution. Of course we do that, too. But we also want to THANK YOU for all you have already done! We send our thanks to our Rotary partners in Sustainable Cambodia Australia, and to our supporters and friends everywhere. You have made an amazing difference in the lives of the families and children!

High school graduates from the SC Lasky School 
With all your help, we've been able to extend our education program this year to new communities in Pursat, and to four other provinces, including Siem Reap, Kampong Thom, Kampong Cham, and Preah Sihanouk. The result? More than 4,500 students in our Cambodian school programs! Thanks to everyone who has made this possible, especially our corporate sponsors Barclays, Synogen, and TCS Travel/Starquest Expeditions, and Sustainable Cambodia Australia, and all our Student Sponsors everywhere!

Thanks to wonderful supporters like you, Sustainable Cambodia and Sustainable Cambodia Australia are improving the quality of children's lives, helping their families achieve sustainability and self-sufficiency through wells, irrigation systems, schools, agricultural training, and empowerment programs.


We strive to be as efficient with funding as possible. We have only native Cambodians for paid staff, and everyone else works as unpaid volunteers. We spend nothing on marketing, and all contributed funding goes directly to the Cambodian village and school projects. But there are still a lot of costs involved, including well-drilling, pumps, cistern lining, water pipes, seeds, school building material, books and school materials, etc. Funding is always a challenge, and is our only real limitation. So we are always thinking, "What can we do about this?"

Well, one of our supporters didn't just "think about it"... She came up with a solution! And she took action…
