PARTNERSHIP in F A C C H
- In November 2016 we met a Swiss entrepreneur visiting Lolei school. He and his wife were travelling across Cambodia and also happened to visit the temples around Siem Reap. Their guide Dane took them to the remote place of Lolei and showed them the school and the achievements of the venerable monk Hun Houk and his dedicated team. Upon their return to Europe the couple started a project in order to support the Learning Centers / Schools, the Boarding School and the Scholarships. Within two months a solid project with a proper project management on spot and reliable checks & balances was put in place. In Steve, a European based in Siem Reap, we found a professional local project manager. Steve is a “down to earth” person, a former farmer and also an entrepreneur with great skills. Adding a well-established, renowned audit company for the quarterly reports the project was ready for takeoff. Two family foundations in Switzerland joined the couple and are now substantially contributing to the running costs.
All donations go directly to the local projects. All operating costs for the project management and most of the investments/refurbishments are covered by the swiss couple.
In 2017 the toilets were improved, a shower was built and bunk beds were added to the Boarding School. The food allowance was enhanced and therefore fruits, vegetables and vitamins could be added to the three daily portions of rice.
If you are interested in getting to know more about the project, please contact the venerable monk Hun Huok. He will then put you in touch with the project management – either in Switzerland or in Cambodia.
