We are very grateful to everyone for their contributions, links, and advice. I'm elated that we made goal. I'm pulling together all my notes and will post reflections about all the campaign shortly! In the meantime, enjoy the thank you video!
AND, Leng Sopharath is only one of 16 college students the Sharing Foundation is supporting. In addition, the Sharing Foundation is sponsoring 40 high school students and provides an English program in the Roteang Village School for over 500 kids. And that's not all, the Sharing Foundation provides school uniforms (a requirement to enter school) to street kids in Cambodia so they can attend school. 's These uniforms are made by girls in our vocational program where we teach these young women sewing skills and pay them to work for our sewing shop or train them for higher paying jobs in the garment industry.
So, if don't worry that we're over goal - there are many children who will benefit from the additional support.
