Building a home for a Cambodian family

My two friends and I are traveling to a city outside of Siem Reap, Cambodia to build a house for a family in need. Through the MyGapYear organization our goal is to raise $3000.00 to build a house for a single mother of 8 who has had a truly troubling life. Her husband died 11 years ago from an illness and her oldest son passed away while trying to provide for the family. She currently is unable to work and her two youngest children, who are still in school, do what they can around the community to help with the needs of the family.

Cambodia is one of the worlds poorest countries and about 1/3 of the population lives on about $1.00 a day. Volunteering goes a long way and is greatly appreciated. We would like to ask anyone who is willing to donate to our cause to do so as we will be buying all of the supplies and will be working with a team of locals to assist us in building the house. We will be posting photos along the way so you can follow the progress of the project. We are so excited to have the opportunity to give a family a home and we hope that you will help us complete our goal!

Happy House!
Ashley, Tyler, and Cathy
