Dear friends and family,

I am participating in a virtual immersion to assist students in the squatter communities of Phnom Penh, Cambodia at schools supported by The Matesabroad Foundation. [www.matesabroad.org.au].

Each week we will be preparing and then conducting on-line face to face teaching sessions to help the Cambodian students with their conversational English. We are also trying to raise as much money as we can to ensure that these Cambodian students have a scholarship to attend attend high school.  

The average family income of these students was $10 per day. This has significantly decreased due to the impact of Covid-19. As a result, many students are now dropping out of school.

This cost for one scholarship is $250. There are 134 students needing scholarships in 2021.


1. $55       School “fees” at public school $1.25 /week x 44 weeks.

2. $120     $10/month Food Pack for the family to ensure that students stay in school and do not have to work at the markets. 

3. $50       Bike for travel. This includes lessons on bike maintenance and repair.

4. $25       Backpack, stationary pack.
