Tango for PLF~!

La PLF è fortunata ad avere dei sostenitori la cui gentilezza e generosità non finisce quando lasciano la Cambogia. Prendiamo il caso di Ale e Gabri, che ci hanno fatto visita lo scorso anno: tornati a casa in Italia hanno collaborato con i loro amici per organizzare una festa di beneficenza molto particolare, raccogliendo fondi per oltre $ 3500. The PLF is blessed with supporters whose kindness and generosity doesn’t end when they leave Cambodia. In the case of Ale and Gabi, who visited last year, they partnered with friends back home in Italy to have a very unique sort of fund raising event and raised over $3500. (more…)

2010 Bicycle Distribution

Every year the PLF awards bicycles to graduating 6th graders as well as first and second in class for grades 4 and 5. Bicycles assist rural children greatly in realizing their dreams to continue to secondary school, as they are often a fair distance from their villages.  We find that students in 4th and 5th grade will work hard for the prize of driving home a bike, which is useful not only to them but to their families as well. This year we were very happy indeed to distribute 77 bikes at Wat Bo, 62 at Tchey, 33 at Knar and 15 at Koh Ker.
