Elmsett Harvest Supper

On 27 September Nathan Nelson (fellow volunteer, HOPE website guru and great mate) spoke at the Harvest Supper held at Elmsett Village hall about his experiences working on an education development project in Cambodia for the last year. He spoke about Cambodia, it being one of the poorest countries in the world, with most of the population earning less than one dollar a day and the severe problems of disease as well as poor health and education systems. Nathan worked at the Sangkheum Center for Children training the young adults in English as well as social and vocational skills to help them with their careers and living prospects. This work has been the forerunner for the Young Adult Program that HOPE is now supporting. The guests at the Harvest Supper were kind enough to donate their collection to us at HOPE, in support of the Sangkheum Center and other education development projects in Cambodia. Nathan, Tanya and I would like to extend our sincerest thanks to those who listened so intently and asked questions, and donated so generously.

Following the interest of the Elmsett Harvest Supper and subject to availability we’re happy to go and speak at suppers, community gatherings, schools or larger functions about our work in Cambodia. Please go to our contact us page should you wish to have an event about Cambodia and would like to learn more about what we can do.
