From time to time people ask us what they can do to help us and so we are providing this Wish List for your consideration. If you have any questions please contact us.
- Education Fund. Presently our combined daily educational cost for all of our children living at the center is about $30.00. This includes lunch money, snacks, and fees for extra classes. Additionally our educational fund covers our University Students and Trade School students in Phnom Penh.
- $260 for bottleless water dispenser for the boys' dorm.
- $60 replacement filters for bottleless water dispenser in girls' dorm.
Please note that when we receive items we do not need, it's difficult to get rid of them. We do not, at this time, have another organization to give them to and we can't just 'give them away' in the village as there is no way to choose who gets them and who doesn't. Please consider this when donating items you no longer need.
