Lips in' Sync 2016

Plans are underway for the 2016 'Lips N Sync' charity event. Put the date aside for an awesome evening on 20 February 2016. Last years event was fantastic ..... heaps of fun and will live on in the annals of Nymboida's musical history. Some of the acts were so good that they were repeated at a local Australia day event.
Here's a link to info from last years event

Event Flyer !

It's your chance to be a star! Its karaoke without the bad vocals!

Email me with the song you will mime or preferably a link to the Youtube clip, dress as your artist of choice and ' work it, baby!'

Toni is seeking donations of home cooked meals for the buffet. Please let me know if you can help out. 

You get a delicious smorgasbord meal, donated by awesome locals from Nymboida, and some great entertainment.  The door charge is $15 for Adults, $5 per child. All proceeds go to our projects in Cambodia.  Don't forget to BYO drinks.

You can download a flyer suitable for printing here and for email here

Christmas gift ideas

We will be holding a stall at the Nymboida Twilight markets on Friday 18th December and will be focusing on gift ideas for Christmas. We sell scarves, sarong bags and soaps made by ladies in the poorest villagers who use the sales as a way to provide food and education for their children. Selling these products at our market stalls ensures that the proceeds benefit these families.

Ongoing projects

While we don't communicate everything that's happening all the time, all of our projects are ongoing, which is exactly what your generous donations are used for, similarly when you come and support  events. We would like to express our gratitude to all who assist us with our efforts.

While we have had new donors join our cause we have also had a few who, for changed personal reasons have withdrawn support. This level of uncertainty hasn't allowed us to take on any new projects as we want to make sure we have enough financial support to continue with all the on-going projects.  We also have the double whammy of the continually worsening exchange rate as Cambodia uses the U.S Dollar.  So while there may be a dearth of new and exciting news, the reality is, all our projects are funded and we can continue only because of the generosity of those who have helped out.

University scholarships - update 

Sok Mong is in his last year of university studying Tourism and English. He has been passing his subjects well and we are confident that he will achieve his goals and become the first member of his family to obtain a university degree. We are so proud to have enabled him via the donations from our events and supporters, you have made it possible. 

Seng Somnang is continuing with his Engineering studies.  We have funded extra one-on-one English classes  and I can already see the difference in his written English.  He needed extra tuition in English as many of the STEM courses at University are taught in English and he was struggling.
