In Cambodia, the rainy season is just around the corner. When the heavens open in Cambodia, serious flooding is no surprise, in the countryside or in town. Farmers will soon become busy planting rice that will need to sustain them as the coming year's supply, which will be harvested in November.
But, when the waters dry up Cambodia will suffer the usual six months of drought. That’s when our wells become especially important to provide them a consistent supply of water for personal use and to irrigate their home garden in order to continue feeding their families.
President John F. Kennedy once wrote, “One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.” Behind every donation a life is being changed. Your generous giving is making a real difference every day, every month, every year.
Why should I give monthly? To make an even greater impact. With consistent monthly giving it makes implementing our projects easier because we know the funding will be there.
We welcome individuals interested in volunteering, interning and fundraising at our work site in Cambodia or from your home. We expect that your greatest satisfaction will come from knowing you helped a number of rural Cambodian families.
Because past civil wars, political unrest, and genocide set the stage for significant rural poverty in Cambodia today.
There are several reasons why Cambodia is such a poor country, some with their roots in past events, and some due to present-day issues. Collectively, these influences have left one in five Cambodians living in poverty.
The plight of Cambodia’s rural villager is what inspired Trailblazer Foundation’s co-founders, Chris Coats and Scott Coats, to create a nonprofit that focuses on Siem Reap province and clean water.
