I'll be backpacking to thailand and cambodia with one of my friend in the early june. We are hoping to experience the native life of cambodians as well as to gain new exposure to what cambodia can bring along. however, online agencies are pretty pricey and i guessed that they are overcharging for some reasons. we are hoping if any one can guide us in this and give us some recommendations.
I have friends in Phnom Penh that help orphans and poor families with: food, shelter, medical, schooling, etc. They can always use another person to help. No fees involved. If this is something you might be interested in, send me a PM. Mike
Here's something that might interest you.
The Triam School Foundation was set up to help children with education and is privileged to help them all towards a purposeful young adulthood.
The location of the school is important as it borders with Cambodia .
In this area according to UN’s human development index there are up to 1 million without education with no such thing as a safety net and the foundation is now helping these children.
We have just received funding for a website which will be available in a couple of weeks time but you can take a look at the attached documentand and our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/#!/triamsuksa.soidao which gives you more of an insight into the foundation and what we hope to achieve.
The Foundation now needs funds for new projects and I am asking you for any ideas or advice you can give me or you can forward the email to anyone you think can help me.
Thank you and kind regards,
