Global Children-Cambodia has set a fundraising goal of $25,000. In order to achieve this goal, we are looking for 100 team members by November 15th.
Curious about the students you'll be helping? Theavy Chhun grew up in the Kampong Cham Orphanage Center in Cambodia, where she interacted with many foreigners and tourists who visited, but rarely stayed long enough to build lasting relationships with the orphans. More than anything else, Theavy wanted an education, as she knew it was the key to a successul future and a ticket out of a difficult life, working for next to nothing in a sweatshop. She found solace in novels, like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Dickens' Oliver Twist. She learned about Global Children through one of our former students, and was accepted into our program. Today, she is a Korean major at RUPP’s Institute of Foreign Language -- in addition to taking classes from our Student House's Specialized Curriculum. With her skill set, Theavy wants to work as a tour guide or as interpreter. Learn more about Theavy's story here, and meet more of our students by watching this video.
This crowdfunded event will begin on November 24th, and peaks on #GivingTuesday December 1st running through the holiday season. #GivingTuesday is a special call to action to create a global day of giving that brings diverse organizations and communities around the world together to give back.
If each member on average raises $250 we have reached our goal! We are offering some exciting incen-tives for both the first 25 people to sign up as well as the first five people to raise $1,000 -- so be sure to stay tuned for announcements about prizes!
