Epic Arts is transforming lives and communities in Cambodia.
Their message is that Every Person Counts and that we should see ability and not disability. Every person is a unique human being with something individual to bring to the world.
Over the past six years I have been fortunate to be able to work alongside Epic Arts in conjunction with my school. Their presence in the town of Kampot has changed the local community by providing inclusive education, employment and arts and culture. Their dance performances cover a huge range of topics from the Khmer Rouge to teaching about personal hygiene and self care.
On a personal level, I have been lucky enough to cultivate friendships with the Epic team. It was my friend Sakun who invited me to run the Siem Reap Half Marathon with him to help raise funds for Epic. We are lucky enough to be joined by Hannah who runs the Epic Cafe. The Cafe is community hub in Kampot, and is also a source of employment for Epic Students and others in the wider community.
All the money we raise will go directly to Epic, who are a UK based charity. Other than the cafe, the shows and workshops, Epic rely on donations as a source of income. Your donations will go towards people who are making a better world for themselves and their community.
