Do Some Good While In Cambodia!

Posted by mike1700 on 9/6/2009 at 11:14

Hello,
My name is Michael and Im a teacher in New York City. I have been working with the wealthiest kids on the planet who have everything and all my life I have always wanted to experience working with kids who have nothing. I went to Cambodia and fell in love, came back to NYC and started my own charity. I went back again in March to do more research, teach, and help. There are so many good people helping these kids but still more needs to be done. Starting a charity is not easy either and its a work in progress. IM trying to raise money from all the wealth that surrounds me here. IM going back for the summer in 4 weeks. If you would like some advice on how to help, even if you only have a few hours it will be an incredible experience and complete your trip. The children will touch your heart and you will return home a changed person. Any persons I put you in contact with I personally know and have spent time with. That is the "key" to helping out. Like I said there are many good people doing great things but also many scams just like there are many scams where we come from in the western world. Please contact me thru this thread or via my website at www.TomorrowsKidz.org
**This site is amazing and was very helpful in preparing me for my first trek over there.**
Safe Travels!
Michael

Michael

There's (sticky) similar post on this Cambodian Forum:

http://www.travelfish.org/board/post/cambodia/5445_paying----to-volunteer--usually-not-a-good-idea-

Did you try and 'engage' with Amanda at that link?

If not yet, it may be worth your while to get in touch with her.

Cheers

Hey,
Yes we talked and met for dinner in PP, she is very nice and doing some great things over there. But she also ran into some complications which shows just how difficult and frustrating it can be sometimes.
Regards
mike
