New Lives from the Gift of a Well!

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!

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!
