K.I.D.S. Summer Update

Hi All,

We hope you have been having a great summer.

79 children get bikes for school
In Cambodia, it is back to school time and many children cannot go to school as they cannot afford a simple, standard $40.00 bicycle. With funds generously donated, we recently provided bikes for 79 children and youth so they can travel the long distances needed to get to school. Our Cambodian friend Kim made sure the bikes got to the most needy students. Kim is a wonderful man we work with, he is a teacher and volunteers his time to support education for poor rural kids. The students were thrilled to be able to pursue their dream of furthering their education and families were also extremely appreciative.

New bikes for students

We also heard that the young people we support with English lessons, Cambodian school tuituion and other school support have all passed their year.

The computer lab continues to be a great asset to the high school students and the teachers. We are hoping to provide the school with 15 more this year so they can rotate many more students through this class.

Wishing you and yours all the best,
Adrianne and Rick
