On the Ground Report
Ordinary people can do
extraordinary things
that make a difference
in the world,
one child at a time.
Congratulations to our Marathon Man, Chris 'Bunny' Warren, who with his two strong legs and a caring heart, raised an abundance of money for : one Well, two Latrines, plus $500 worth of supplies for Kiriminoun School. We will be running for CCDO in Siem Reap Marathon on 3 December. Who wants so join us?
Health Initiative Follow-up
We continue to monitor the kids at both Tapang & Kiri Schools with basic health tests. 13% of all students are referred to doctors. Some have just vision, hearing or dental issues, other need more help. Those whose parents are unable to transport them for treatments are taken with our Pepin Tuk Tuk into Siem Reap for medical intervention.

Art Speaking from the Heart
After the Khmer New Year vacation, the students are back at school. They will be able to see their schoolmates finished booklets, created with the help of our volunteer graphic designer from the Netherlands, Brian Bibi, during his 10-day visit in Siem Reap, Cambodia. They show & tell, their hopes and dreams, and also some heartbreaking challenges they face everyday.
Their drawings reveal more than we could find out by simply asking. To give you a taste of the power of the student’s art, here is a drawing made by Sophal, a 17-year old student at TaPang School, speaking out about Domestic Violence.
Later this month, all 10 booklets will be published & available on Amazon and as perks through a Crowdfunding project to support a dedicated Art Program & Teacher coming soon! Stay tuned!
