This is Helping Hands Cambodia's official fundraising page.

Helping Hands Cambodia is not about giving charity. At Helping Hands, our aim is to give people a hand up, not a ‘hand out’, as this can cause people to become reliant on aid. We want to enable the Cambodian people to help themselves. Our aim is to build up the pride and dignity of individuals, family units and the village community as a whole.
 
Helping Hands was founded by Australian photographer Deborah Groves. The organisation started out helping one small village approximately 25 kms from Siem Reap. In recent years, Helping Hands has built two bridges, helped build roads, provided almost 1000 bicycles via a "work for a bike" programme, and helped people get medical care. 

Today, Helping Hands operates a school for more than 300 students, teaching Khmer, English, Health&Hygiene and Life Skills, provides breakfast for 100 children 5 days a week, provides First-Aid on site, family support and supports young adults in their university studies.

Currently, Helping Hands has been running for 10 years and just after reaching this amazing milestone, we are at the start of a very new adventure: building a new school! 

To be able to give our students their best opportunity at brighter future through education, school expansion is necessary. More classrooms would mmean more space for smaller classes, more teachers and an increase of lerning hours - all things that will optimize our students learning and the quality of teaching. 
With this new adventure on our doorstep, we need to raise more money than ever to be able to give our students and their families their best shot at a prosperous future in rural Cambodia.
