About this Project:
Mira’s NGO partner, Family Care Cambodia (FCC), works across urban and rural regions with students ranging from 4-20 providing both academic and vocational skills while additionally also working with parents on developing positive family structures. Particular to this project, FCC seeks funding for students in rural Kampong Speu, Cambodia. The school has a grassy field for play (to the right of this photo above), though that field currently contains only two well-worn soccer nets. Six tree stumps also once sat on the field, and the children used them for jumping and running games, but they have been removed for the kids’ safety. There is no shade.
A well-loved and now rusted swing set and slide exist. They were originally on the field, making play challenging under constant and intense heat. They were moved to under the shaded area around two years ago, and their lifetimes are nearing an end. FCC seeks support to purchase new equipment: soccer balls, volleyballs, rattan balls, netting and poles to partition the field into designated play zones, a new play structure with floor padding, slides, and a playhouse.
Your $10 donation = 1 soccer ball
Your $50 donation = 5 volleyballs
Your $100 donation = netting partitions for the field
Sports, physical activity and playtime in a child-safe environment are a huge factor in raising strong, healthy children. Investing in a playground upgrade is investing in these children’s future. Gifts of all sizes are warmly welcomed!
