Sponsorship news

HOPE has sponsored two places for two young adults from the Self Help Community Center to attend a Permaculture course – literally defined as permanent agriculture. The course will run from the 5-21st December and is being organised by our friends at The Singing Tree Cafe. Our local community café here in Siem Reap. For more info about this course visit http://www.singingtreecafe.com/permaculturemenu.html 

This is very exciting – exactly the kind of project we want HOPE funds to support. Local projects already set up but short of funding which are aimed at providing development skills, giving the young adults a better chance for the future. We shall update you with photos during after the course.

We have also just enrolled Ton Pin in his second year at university studying tourism and having recently passed his 3rd level at English school we have sponsored him for the next level at ACE school.  His sister has also just started junior high school and to save her a long walk to school, and inspired by Tanya’s bike ride we bought her bike to help her along her way.

• To sponsor two places on the Permaculture course costs approx. £150.00
• A full year at university costs approx. £180.00
• A bike costs approx. £25.00 bought locally at Psar Leu (Upper Market)
