On Saturday 21 January 2007, VWB together with other volunteers took a trip to Angkor Borei in Takeo Province to deliver stationeries to 550 students and 15 teachers from 4 primary schools: Kok Thlok Primary School, Bak Day Primary School, Tuol Putrea Primary School, and Prek Taphor Primary School.

Background

In late 2004, a group of 8 graduates in Phnom Penh, had a short visit to Angkor Borei, and we met children living along the Angkor Borei River, of Angkor Borei district. Their communities were flooded every year as the area lays out in the lower land of Mekong Delta, and this condition has defined the children’s study period of only 6 month-long for an academic year (from January to June) while the general study period is 9 month-long per academic year.
Since 2004, with donation as stationery and fund from university students, and local/international generous donors, we has conducted 4 series of program within the last two years, and helped support 540 children and 15 teachers of the above 4 primary schools for they were in need of help and lack of support. The average fund for the individual child was 2500 Riel (about 0.65USD).

Objectives

This support is a motivation to share our love, care and support for the needed children in order to:
1). Bridging the gaps of rural and urban connection
2). Imposing the heart of volunteerism and solidarity in the name of human being
3). Bringing light of hope and direction for rural children through the interaction with senior people, undergraduate and graduate students.
4). Learning to care for the beloved human being through sharing of time and labors.

In June 2006, VWB’s volunteers conducted a paper collection project, which all volunteers wrote a proposal letter requesting to various organizations, institutions and embassies for thrown away paper in order to raise fund to conduct the Clean Teeth Program for two times in Kruorsa Thmey Orphanage Centre. In December 2006 our volunteers had a fundraising project that they raised fund for friends, students, organizations and other institutions. The money raised added by the money left from the Clean Teeth Program was spent on buying necessary stationeries for 532 poor students at Cham Bok 1 and 2 primary school in Kompong Speu province.

With the fund received from the fundraising project, on 31 December 2006 VWB’s volunteers conducted a Stationery Delivery Project to 532 students from two primary schools: Chambok 1 and 2, which are located in Phnom Sruoch district, Kompong Speu province. The stationeries for students included books, pens, pencils, pencil sharpener, erasers, boards, rulers and chalks, and for the schools there were two black boards, 3 packages of cements and wires for making vegetable fields in the schools. Since the fund raised was limited, VWB was not yet able to buy tables and chairs for the students in Cham Bok 2 primary school. Thus, the students will continue studying by sitting on the leaves.
