Cambodian charity Human and Hope Association Inc is excited announce the launch of Elephants for Education, a crowdfunding campaign that gives supporters the chance to support education in Cambodia. Supporters will also be rewarded with an adorable stuffed elephant (or even a whole family!)
The organization, which recently celebrated becoming entirely locally run, aims to empower Cambodians to create sustainable futures for themselves through education, vocational training and community support.
Some of the programs offered by the organization include English classes, art classes and preschool. Another program, which has been extremely successful, is the sewing project where disadvantaged women complete a 10 month course to learn sewing and business skills.
It is this program where seamstress Saney learnt the skills that would enable her to start her own business. She also receives an income by making some of the adorable products available for supporters of the Elephants for Education scheme.
Sally Hetherington, who worked at Human and Hope Association for 4 years, says the campaign is crucial to funding the organisations ongoing running costs.
“HHA is achieving such great things, and this wouldn’t be possible without our generous supporters. Each and every donation makes such a huge impact and allows the committed local team to continue their great work.”
Sally is also excited that the campaign coincides with the release of Human and Hope’s adorable range of stuffed elephants.
“Not only is each elephant super cute, but each one has their own name. For example, Bopha can provide a whole month’s English education to a child!” she says.
The campaign launches on July 27th and is aiming to raise $15,000 by August 25th. Check out the campaign at https://www.chuffed.org/project/elephantsforeducation and keep your eyes peeled for exclusive giveaways!
