The distance from Sydney to Siem Reap, Cambodia, is 7,252km. That’s around 9,572,640 steps. This April, I am proud to be part of a team that is virtually walking the distance to Cambodia.
By supporting my participating in Walk to Cambodia, you will help me raise funds to provide education to Cambodian children living in poverty. Children like *Clay.
Clay is an eight-year old girl who would cry every day when her mother brought her to school. Born prematurely, Clay was much smaller than the other students and felt scared to be amongst bigger kids. With persistence from her teacher and dedication from her mother who wasn’t afforded an education herself, Clay’s behaviour eventually started to change. Clay graduated from preschool in 2017 and made the transition to public school where she is now studying in grade two whilst also attending Khmer and English classes at Human and Hope Association.
Clay has a bright future because of Human and Hope Association, and I want to make sure other children like Clay are afforded the same opportunity. Because of your generosity, we will be able to continue to make grassroots change in Cambodia.
I believe that walking is a good physical health exercise for everyone. Let’s join with me to walk every day for our health and help me raise funds to provide education to Cambodian children living in poverty.
I am the managing director and co-founder of Human and Hope Association. I am passionate about alleviating poverty in my community through a sustainable, grassroots approach.
