COCONUT SCHOOL

Silk Island (Koh Dac) Nr. Phnom Penh 

The Coconut School project is a very deserving initiative. Aimed at providing children on the Silk Island community with access to

the internet and IT resources during the weekends to aid teach them English, Computer Science and Art. 


 


The Women's International Group Community Fund Project team received an application from the local orgnaniser and after a

thorough review decided that it was a very worthy cause and worth donating to support its start-up. What was really amazing is that

the whole school is constructed from waste material such as old bottles, tyres and other refuse.  A great and exciting way to help

teach the children about recycling and green initiatives too!



LIGHT OF MERCY HOSTEL

Near Phnom Penh 

Started in 1997, the Light of Mercy Hostel project is another very worthy cause sponsored by WIG. It was set-up to help as many as
30 children at a time. Children that suffer from blindness, deafness and other motor-neuron disabilities. Allowing them to live together
as a supportive community so that they can learn additional life skills together after they return from the various schools they attend.
The idea being that this will better help them to integrate and aid enable them to gain employment through the skills they would also
be taught at the centre. Primarily, through music and musical instrument training.. 

WIG donated Bikes
