Schools for Children of Cambodia (SCC)
Schools for Children of Cambodia (SCC) is a UK registered charity, working in collaboration with local Cambodia-based Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) to improve access to and quality of education in Cambodia. SCC believes that every child has the right to a free and good-quality education. Education helps children develop the skills they need to make positive changes in their lives, and finally break free from poverty.
Volunteering at Anlung Pi
In May 2017 I had the opportunity to spend a month volunteering at the school and nursery in Anlung Pi, supporting the teachers in English language lessons, and what a fantastic opportunity it was! Despite the language barriers I felt I really got to know the children well over the course of the month, and what a fantastic group of children they are, some of the happiest and grateful children I've ever come across, and witnessing first hand what this school offers them and the better future it can provide was such an eye opening experience for me. My time in Cambodia has special place in my heart and I'll continue to support this school and similar projects in any way I can.
British 10K 2017
Our thanks go to Steve, Arlene, Baykal, Heather and Callum who ran the British 10K London for SCC on Sunday 9th July and managed to raise over £2,000 which will be split between our three projects in Cambodia. These funds will make a huge difference to the lives of many Cambodian children. Well done and thanks to all of you from the children in Cambodia!
If you'd like to raise funds for children's education in Cambodia, whilst at the same getting fit and participating in one of the most iconic races in London, sign up for next year's British 10K by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
AFESIP Yoga Classes
We're pleased to report that thanks to the hard work and commitment of Jan, Raphael and Charlie Brazil along with support from SCC, lots of young women in the AFESIP shelter are enjoying regular yoga classes. Not only are these classes fun, they also have proven therapeutic value in helping people recover from trauma. We'd like to thank the Brazil's, Delphine at Krama Yoga, Leslie Guyton and AFESIP for making this possible. If you want to help support these classes then donate here.
