As part of our voluntary gap year, we, Theresa and Filippa, are currently assisting English teachers in one of the primary schools of the local NGO Cambodian Children's Fund (CCF). CCF aims to stabilise households and create educational opportunities in Steung Meanchey, Phnom Penh. Here, families live next to a former garbage dump and are caught in the vicious cycle of extreme poverty. The children lack access to education and are left to become scavengers instead of students. It is CCF's vision to improve the lives of these destitute children through high quality education and leadership training.

During our three months stay, we have witnessed the obstacles the children encounter daily. Often, the students are unable to concentrate in class because they suffer from stomach aches after missing a meal. Similarly, children who experience emotional abuse at home struggle to take part in the lessons. In the face of these challenges, the children remain warm-hearted and welcoming. We have deeply connected with all the children, so saying good-bye in a few weeks will certainly be tough.

The motivation for our fundraising is to provide CCF with a change which will continue to support the children's learning process even after our departure. Inspired by the kids' eagerness to learn and explore despite their disadvantages, we wish to advance the school's teaching resources and introduce technological learning tools. In conversation with the school staff, it has become apparent that a sufficient supply of desktops is needed. In more specific terms, the fundraiser will ideally cover the expenses of 10 computers each with a cost of $400. While using computers in the classroom helps the students to familiarise themselves with a technological environment, it also provides teachers with digital study materials. The remaining money will spent on 60 pairs of headphones ($15 each). These are useful in exposing the children to the English language and in practicing their listening skills. We consider this to be an appropriate investment since education and technology are greatly intertwined in today's world.

Dear Friends and Family, help us in our goal to give the kids of Steung Meanchey a chance to engage in academic activities and keep up with modern education. This way we can break the cycle and change the prospective of the children's future. We and the community of CCF are extremely grateful for each and every donation.
