We are truly humbled by the efforts of the HKUST EMBA students. USD 46,000 (HKD 362,900) was raised by these incredible students to help the children Sakka Foundation supports in Cambodia.
It is our great pleasure to let everyone know the massive difference that funding of this scale can make for these kids. Sakka team members worked closely together with the students to allocate the money. The following as accomplished:
Built a volunteer house on Who Will's property
Sponsored all the expenses of one house of children on Who Will's property for one full year
Purchased a generator, providing power to a community of over 65 people on Who Will
Paid for 2 teacher's salaries, teaching English and computer classes in Phnom Penh for more than 1 year
Food allowance - paid for the food for the whole Wat Opot community for 10 months
In celebration of their graduation - the students visited Cambodia in September this year. Photos to come!
Our true thanks to:

It is our great pleasure to announce that Samorn has passed his final exams and graduated from university.
Cathey & Todd travel to Phnom Penh to deliver the great news to Wayne (on our own dime of course!!)
Sakka Foundation has successfully donated $5,500 USD to Wat Opot Children's Community in Takeo Province! The funds were delivered to Wayne from Wat Opot at the end of May 2009. Cathey & Todd made a special trip to Wat to let Wayne know in person - plus to spend the night with the kids. Todd took some fantastic photos...please enjoy...
