Cambodia Project Fundraiser 2018
In June/July 2018 a group of 6th From students will be travelling again to Cambodia to support the work of a charitable non-governmental organisation 40km north of Siem Reap, Cambodia. The organisation is called My Happy Village Cambodia or MHVC for short and they provide education and support to a commune of several villages in a very poor and deprived region of Siem Reap. Similarly to last year, students will be working/volunteering in the two schools that are run by MHVC during the visit as well as helping to build wash rooms/toilet facilities in 3 or 4 village homes where there is greatest need. Over 40% of homes in this area do not have such facilities and as a result much illness and disease come from lack of hygiene and access to clean fresh water. The funds that we raise will enable us to buy the resources in Cambodia for the projects that students will be undertaking there.
To enable us to buy resources, including the building materials for this volunteering work, the group have been busy raising funds. Just before Christmas the group did a bag-pack at Tesco, Hornsea which raised an incredible £700 towards the project. We are now raising funds via our 150 Club – a monthly draw scheme, where we hope to raise a further £800+
