To all the Mums, Dads and family sponsors who care enough about children, who through no fault of their own, find it difficult to determine their own futures. Without the wonderful support from all of our sponsors, over 400 children would still have no access to education.
AllKids major sponsor is the MGA Whittles Group of Companies. Thank you for sharing our vision!
Startup funding for the AllKids program was provided by St Peters Rotary Club of South Australia, MGA Whittles Group of Companies, the DAK foundation and The Morris Family Foundation in Australia.
To David Perkins of Perkins Solicitors, Sydney, for guiding us through the necessary statutory and legal requirements. David’s contribution has been tremendous!
To Maree Caulfield of MGI Adelaide Pty Ltd who has generously provided invaluable advice to ensure that AllKids do things ‘by the book’.
To Geraldine Cox and Sunrise Children’s Villages who has kindly provided AllKids with the use of our little car. The 2003 Toyota RAV4 is used to transport children to various hospitals and medical centers and for staff travel between Ream and Sihanoukville.
To the AllKids Chairman, Mr John George of MGA/Whittles Group who is our guiding hand in all matters financial and administrative.
A message from the Chairman of AllKids
Since 2009, I have been privileged to work with Paul Otto, who managed the construction of the fabulous Ream Sunrise Three facility which provides hope and opportunity for up to 150 HIV affected children.
Having worked in the Ream area for this period of time, it was natural for Paul to become acquainted with many of the locals. It did not take him long to discover that a significanr number of children in the region were not attending school regularly and many not at all. We know that if a child is not stimulated educationally in the early years of life there is a real possibility that the child will never reach his or her potential. Worse, without education they stand to become “at risk” street kids, with little hope in life.
I applaud my colleague, Paul, who is undertaking the challenges of the AllKids project in a voluntary capacity. My heartfelt best wishes go out to Paul and his Khmer staff in establishing this fantastic initiative.
