BENEFITING: SEALNet, Inc.
Founded in 2004 by graduate students from Stanford University, Southeast Asian Leadership Network (commonly referred to as SEALNet) aims to foster the spirits of service leadership in future leaders of the Southeast Asian community. Over the past 11 years, we have organized activities in various ASEAN nations, keeping the passion and commitments of our founders alive.
Project Cambodia 2015 (PC15) is inspired by the alarming number of children living in garbage dumps among the outskirts of Phnom Penh, many of whom lives in extreme poverty and does not have access to education. They are forced to pick garbage or engage in other dangerous activities in order to earn money for supporting their families. PC15 is set up with the help from local organization to advocate education to these underprivileged children. We plan to achieve this by organizing numerous academic and extracurricular lesson plans that will allow the children to explore subjects that are not integrated in the Cambodian education curriculum, and enhance their interests on subjects that already are. In summary, our goal is simple: to make the children fall in love with school and education.
The fund we raise will go in to providing accommodations, food for our project members as well as renting venues and buying supplies for the workshops and outreach programs.
