Hi I’m George.

                         Next summer I am hoping to undertake a life changing experience by going to volunteer in Cambodia for three weeks with Actual Impact. Actual Impact is a non-profit organisation whose main goal is to eradicate extreme poverty in Cambodia through education. Cambodia is a small South East Asian country where a large percentage of the population lack the means to support their own families. As a result, education is limited and this has resulted in generations of people unable to seek better employment and secure themselves a better future. I hope to help this cause by taking on a variety of responsibilities in the area, most notably through teaching English to the local children. Undertaking this will be to the betterment of the local people, as through using my unique skills (namely my English skills) I can make a genuine difference in the area.

If you could donate any money to help fund my volunteering trip, I will be extremely grateful.

About Actual Impact

I have chosen to undertake my volunteering opportunity with Actual Impact because I know that their volunteering schemes make a real difference to the people of Cambodia. Some volunteering organisations have received bad press in recent years due to much of their fundraising money going towards company profit rather than to helping reduce poverty. That is where Actual Impact is different as they are a not for profit organisation where charity comes first, and the money I raise will go to the people it should - the local Cambodians.

Actual Impact are a new organisation operating in Cambodia and the UK. They work closely with Our Friends Organisation (OFO), a non-governmental organisation striving to help vulnerable children in Cambodia and reduce the cycle of poverty in the country.

Between them they are making progress in breaking this cycle; they are already involved with 300 hundred projects throughout Cambodia working with orphanages, schools, universities, hospitals and medical centres. With continuing support they endeavour to eradicate poverty in the country in its entirety.
