New City Church: School Building for Cambodia
Organized by: Lilli Barnum
The fundraiser is officially on!!
March 06, 2016
New City Church of West Seattle is raising funds to build a two-story school building for the children of a small village in Central Cambodia. Lilli Barnum, a member of New City Church, has worked closely with the founder of the school for the last four years. As the students have grown in number, there has been an increasing need for a school building. Up until this point, the teachers and students have functioned with a makeshift carport of sorts to hold class. This has left them all exposed to extreme heat, lots of rain, mosquitos, etc.
The students in this school are primarily children of agricultural families. At school they are taught English and Computer Skills, which helps them prepare for potential work or further education once they are 18.
We have come a long way! The building process for the new school has begun, but we still need to raise $15,000 in order to complete the construction of the building and cover the costs of desks, tables, chairs, blackboards, etc. We hope to continually raise the funds until the building is completed over the course of 2016. Will you help?
