About This Project: 
Per FCC – “We would like to purchase 60 bicycles for students in our programs in Phnom Penh, outside Siem Reap and Kampong Speu. It’s a great opportunity to provide tangible assistance to children in a way that will truly make a lasting difference. Their options now are to walk, usually alone as their parents work; squeeze three or more children on a family’s motorbike if they own one, or simply not come to school at all.  We have been working so diligently to provide quality classrooms with quality teachers, but if our children cannot access any of this, they will never receive the skills they need to succeed in a rapidly modernizing society.”


About This Organization: 
Per FCC – “FCC is recognized by the Cambodian government with MOUs from Ministries of Foreign Affairs, and Education, Youth, and Sports.  Our activities include: translation, production and distribution of children’s books, and assisting a shelter for minor girls rescued from sexual exploitation and domestic violence.  We provide English, computer and art classes; rice and cooking gas monthly, and weaving looms and sewing machines for vocational training.  We built and maintain a second story with bedrooms and lavatories.  At a primary school in Siem Reap, we built and furnished an IT lab, teacher’s office, 3-classroom school building and student lavatories.  300+ students benefit from our English, computer and sports training.  60 students benefit from our assisting a village school.  We operate a hostel for 20 rural boarding students earning their post graduate degrees.  We also help with the annual Cambodian Special Olympic Games.”
