Building Koh Right Hostel & School Part 2
The funds from this campaign will support the construction of the hostel and first school on the beautiful island of Koh Rong Sanloem in Cambodia!
Currently there is no school on the island and most children on the island do not attend school or they are separated from their families to attend school on the mainland. We want to fix this!
Specifically, the funds from this campaign will be used to construct the school, bungalows, dorm rooms, bar, restaurant, kitchen, furniture and landscaping.
Once the construction of the hostel and school are complete, profits from the hostel will make the school self sustainable by supporting:
-local teachers who will teach the students khmer
-foreign volunteers staying at the hostel who will teach the students english/other skills
-free supplies/materials for the students
-anything else the school needs
In 2018 we held a previous campaign on Indigogo that raised about 10% of our $35,000 USD goal. The money raised previously is currently being used to construct the bathrooms, build school desks, pathways and boat renovations. We need to raise the additional money asap to finish the rest of the project. The sooner we can raise the funds, the sooner we can make this dream a reality!
The support from all of you will mean so much to me, my family and families on the island. Last year we lost our business to wealthy foreign investors, but I made it my mission to bring back the fun and help the local community as well. Thats when the idea for Koh Right Hostel & School was born!
We will build the first school on the island offering a free education so that the children on the island will have the same opportunities as those on the mainland.
We also plan to organize and run the first beach clean-up project so that we can keep our island beautiful!
It has always been my dream to make a business that can help support the local people and give back to my community!I want to thank you all again for your loving support to make this dream possible!
Together we grow, together we make a difference!
