My story

[p]This is Helping Hands Cambodia's official fundraising page.[/p][p][/p][lt]div class="mhl"[gt] [lt]div class="fsm uiP mvm"[gt][b]Helping Hands Cambodia[/b] 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.[lt]/div[gt][lt]div class="fsm uiP mvm"[gt] [lt]/div[gt][lt]/div[gt] [lt]address[gt] [lt]div id="id_515516a2ae7c07c18549018" class="text_exposed text_exposed_root"[gt][span=font-style: normal;][b]Helping Hands[/b] 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" program[lt]span class="text_exposed_show"[gt]me, and helped people get medical care. [/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/div[gt][lt]div class="text_exposed text_exposed_root"[gt][span=font-style: normal;][lt]br /[gt][/span][lt]/div[gt][lt]div class="text_exposed text_exposed_root"[gt][span=font-style: normal;]Today, [b]Helping Hands[/b] 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.[/span][lt]/div[gt][lt]div class="text_exposed text_exposed_root"[gt][span=font-style: normal;][lt]br /[gt][/span][lt]/div[gt][lt]div class="text_exposed text_exposed_root"[gt][span=font-style: normal;]Currently, [b]Helping Hands[/b] has been running for 10 years and just after reaching this amazing milestone, we are at the start of a very new adventure: [b]building a new school! [/b][/span][lt]/div[gt][lt]div class="text_exposed text_exposed_root"[gt][span=font-style: normal;][lt]br /[gt][/span][lt]/div[gt][lt]div class="text_exposed text_exposed_root"[gt][span=font-style: normal;]To be able to give our students their [b]best opportunity [/b]at brighter future through education, school expansion is necessary.
