Thank you to everyone who came along to Good Start to the Weekend on Friday 4 December - with your help, we raised over $1,000 to help Cambodian children get a good start on their education.
Zari's time with us is coming to a close - in this blog post she reflects on her experiences as part of our team and looks to the future.
5 year-old Maly is one of our success stories. Born premature in the poor Veal Veng District of Cambodia, Maly was malnourished and suffered from developmental problems including poor speech and memory. Abandoned by her parents, she lives with her grandmother who is a survivor from the war and was never educated.
