Schools for Children of Cambodia

Working with communities to improve access to and quality of education in Cambodia
Welcome Sign in | Join

Schools for Children of Cambodia (SCC) is a UK registered charity. Initially we had our own development team based in Cambodia. We now realise that it is more cost effective and sustainable to help fund Cambodia-based organisations. SCC aims 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.

British 10K Info       British 10K 2014

Six committed volunteers ran the British 10k for SCC this year on Sunday 13th July. A huge thank-you goes to Alexsandro; Alex; Silvia; Andrew; Arlene and Dave (from left to right in the photo). They raised over £2000 which will be split between our four projects in Cambodia and 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!

The Trustees of SCC are proud of Scout Stone's fundraising campaign. We would encourage you to support her efforts and be inspired to follow her example. Set up your own fundraising page via http://www.justgiving.com/sccambodia and click 'fundraise for us'.

Scout and her family were on holiday recently and they visited the schools which she has so actively fundraised to support. They had an amazing time and went to see both schools operated by VDCA. The family found Anlung Pi School to be 'well organised given its infancy and there were 5 or so classrooms which were occupied by eager eyed kids all looking very happy to be there'. From Anlung Pi the family went to the rubbish dump which was 'an eye opener for us all. There were at least 20 people there ranging from 2 years old to 80 years old all occupied with some aspect of living on the pile of burning rubbish'. The family then made their way back to VDCA and 'were very impressed at the established system and infrastructure.' Scout experienced so much on their trip and the Stone Family appreciated seeing first hand the impact her fundraising has made on the lives of the people they met.

Scout continues to raise funds for the children at VDCA. Please support her efforts. Read more

Arlene Gormley has run nearly 500 miles since 2012 and she isn't stopping until she completely circumnavigates the globe for a cause close to her heart.

The 30 year old Irish native started her global trek in Cambodia on December 2012 with a two-fold mission. She hopes to inspire other couch potatoes to get up and start running and she also hopes to raise funds and awareness for Schools for Cambodian Children (SCC), a UK non-profit that works to promote education in Cambodia.

"I want to raise money for a worthwhile charity, while also experiencing a once in a lifetime adventure," said Arlene. She has so far ran in Cambodia, Northern Ireland and London and the next race will be the inaugural Angkor Wat full marathon on 17th August 2014. After that her next stop is USA as Arlene will be living in Boston as an international student studying Sustainable International Development.

Arlene has faced a number of challenges along the way, including enduring 140-degree temperatures this summer and fracturing a bone in her foot in 2013. But she is confident the rest of the journey will go much more smoothly.

"I feel very lucky to be able to run around the world while generating awareness, and more importantly, funds, for the charity 'Schools for Children of Cambodia. It is a wonderful cause and I am very passionate about inclusive education for all children living in poverty in Cambodia."

If you would like to become involved or suggest a local race for Arlene to run- feel free to contact her at arlene@feedingdreamscambodia.org and please donate via her Just Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/arlene-gormley
