My Story

Most children in developed countries take their education for granted–often cherishing the days they don't need to go.

In the developing world things are different–so many children there would LOVE the opportunity of going to school. They may not have much, but they have HOPE.

Hope that one day they will go to school...

Hope that through their education they will be able to create a better life for themselves, their families and their community...

Hope that often results in unrealised dreams–just because they were born in a country where schools are not yet available.

Imagine how your life or the lives of your children would be different today if you never went to school...

I believe that a good education is critical to tackling many of the world's problems including poverty, conflicts, and terrorism. Yet too many children around the world don't have access to it.

One of the things that struck me while doing my humanitarian work in Rwanda over the years is how eager young children in many countries are to learn and to school. They know it's the best way to increase the likelihood they will be able to break free from poverty and improve their lives.

Classroom of Hope is a fantastic charity making huge inroads into this through their projects in Rwanda and Asia. I've decided to raise funds for them to build a school in Cambodia.

For 60,000 Australian Dollars (approximately £35,000) they will build a child-friendly school in partnership with the local community and with agreement from local officials to invest in providing paid teachers. They also provide extra training to teachers to ensure the children in these remote areas receive a good quality education.

Please help me help a whole community of young people for generations to come by giving whatever you can by clicking on the 'DONATE' button above.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DONATIONS ARE IN AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS. Using exchange rates as at May 2018, here are approximate conversion rates:

AUD$10 = £5.50 = US$7.50
AUD$50 = £27.50 = US$37
AUD$100 = £55.50 = US$74

Or another way of looking at things:

£10 = AUD$18.40 = US$13.60
£20 = AUD$37 = US$27.20
£100 = AUD$184 = US$136

The more people that know about Classroom of Hope, the more children will enjoy going to school so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.

With love and gratitude for your support, it means a lot!

We're a team of socially conscious business owners and volunteers (in the UK and US) have come together to raise funds to build a school in Cambodia.

What started as a dream in the mind our leader Alisoun, is now turning into reality, with the scope to develop long-term connections with one of the poorest countries in Asia.

Most of us are travelers who have seen first hand how eager young children in many third world countries would love to get the opportunity to school. It doesn't seem to matter where they live, most know education is the best way to break free from poverty and to improve their lives. And yet many live in places where there is no school to go to.

Imagine how different your life would be if you'd had no education...

Or if there were no schools for your children to go to...

The charity that is building the school is called Classroom of Hope. With the AUD$60,000 we're raising they will build a child-friendly school–working in partnership with the local community, and with agreement from local officials to invest in providing paid teachers so the schools are sustainable. They also provide extra training to teachers to ensure the children in these remote areas receive a good quality education.
