Academic Year 2015-2016 AKC School Open House

A simply Irish-Italian great lady’s Cambodian friend Visit has turned to be an Annual Charity Event happening at Angkor Kids Center school/Community !

This year, 04th October 2015, has become the fourth official Hand-on-donation campaign which we named it in a more formal way as Academic Year 2015-2016 AKC School Open House, presided over by Ms Pamela McCourt Francescone, the president of LinkForAid Charity Association based in Rome, Italy who is the main sponsor of the entire event, and a few other local authority officers as our special speakers and guests toward around 300 hundred students and the families.

In addition to that, this year we have approached to attract an Inbound Tour Operator/DMC called Asia Natural Tours getting involved and fund in the event organization logistics and donate some school bags during the event.

As like every year, this time, we have 12 (twelve) bicycles, 12 (twelve) school bags / satchels with full set of school stationery in side donation of Link For Aid, and 20 (twenty) school bags / satchels donation of Asia Natural Tours, totally benefited to 38 (thirty eight) AKC and Samroang community school children who are the most in need and got good grade at their English classes. Along with the professional organization, proper chairs for the participants, tents, and the Cambodian and Italian flags flying together in front of the school and stage, make the event even much more successful, valuable, and honorable.

Pamela was very impressed by the image of the village and just had one contingent comment after the event and the village visit “Each year I see how things are changing in your village.  You, and all your team who are inspired by you, are really giving these children and the people of Samroang the opportunity for a better future. I know how poor the villages are in Siem Reap province, and I realized it again when we walked back in the dark and I saw families eating together and you told me the man who will look after the chickens will have a better home than he does now.”

Pamela is not only our honorable speaker, but her presence bringing along village 15 bikes, 14 school uniforms, and 14 satchels to be donated to the outstanding of AKC school students and the less privileged students in Samroang community to be able to go to school in this new academic year 2014-2015.

At the end, she promised to the community and to the founder of Angkor Kids Center, Mr. Samnang Chhon, there are more things to come.

Stay with us and see what Linkforaid and Angkor Kids Center bring to live in the forthcoming year of 2015.

And support us to make the great change for general humanity.
