WE DID IT!
Construction of the well at Orang Middle School has been completed!

Thank you to everyone who helped to make this possible!
Please open your hearts to some girls and boys half way around the world from most of you. My goal is to provide easy access to clean water for middle school students in rural Cambodia.
Last march, I met some wonderful schoolgirls who represent a minority in their province because most kids in their age range (13-16) have already dropped out of school due to poverty. While from a completely foreign world compared to ours, these girls were not so different from any of us. They had dreams like we do. Some wanted to be teachers. Some wanted to be doctors. One girl wanted to be a policewoman. None of them wanted the life of poverty that they have seen their families endure.
I want to help the 129 girls and boys at Orang Middle School in Mondulkiri, Cambodia to fulfill their dreams. For any of us to thrive, we must be healthy. To be healthy, we need clean drinking water.
Please help me to raise $2500 to give clean drinking water to these students. Donate any amount, and your name will be included on the dedication plaque at the well completion ceremony.
Cambodia's dry season is quickly approaching which puts further stress on their ability to obtain water. Please donate today, and let's get that well built as soon as possible!
With loving gratitude,
I read an article recently with the quote: "I want clean water the way other people want gold".
