Winter 2016-17 Newsletter

 Reduced 2016 Newsletter Link to Dropbox

2016 was a turbulent year, for many reasons.  For CamKids, the effects of a falling pound, as a result of the UK's Brexit vote, has resulted in a fall in our income and reserves of around 15%.  Following a review of our funding objectives and effectiveness, we are now focusing on our own CCC school and other community projects in Kampong Speu, which are highlighted in our Winter 2016/17 Newsletter.  We now have six full-time Khmer teachers and a total of 382 students studying at CCC school from kindergarten to grade 6. 

Our aim is to run CCC as a full-capacity primary school - two classes at the seven grades we offer, i.e. a total of 480 pupils enrolled.  To be able to achieve this long term aim we need to build two more classrooms and it is also our ambition to build a library that will be a valuable resource for the children and the village – this is something for the future when the financial situation is more stable.

Please click on the link below and take a look at our latest Newsletter, which focuses on CCC School and our associated community projects. If you like what we are doing, why not set up a regular donation - no amount is too small and just £5 per month will achieve a great deal in Cambodia.  Remember, CamKids has no administration or fundraising costs - only Cambodians receive funds from the charity - every penny you raise therefore gets directly to the people in Cambodia. Your support is critical to our continuing aid to many thousands of children and their families. 

If you need an incentive to stick to that New Year's resolution or just want to set yourself a personal challenge for 2017, why not set up a Fundraising Page for CamKids.  Any donation, however small, will help us provide long term support for some of the world's most vulnerable children. 

We wish you all a happy and successful 2017 and hope you enjoy the Newsletter.
