Every month we give 150 bricks toward building school facilities to support education in Cambodia. Bricks and building materials are a good place to start in rural communities that have limited resources. We're helping to build a dormitory in a remote school in Cambodia. These provide housing to young teachers who are often undertaking their first placements far from their own communities. In some instances, students who live far from school may also stay there. School dormitories have proven effective for retaining teachers, encouraging continued enrolment, and building stronger school communities. Bricks may also be used to provide walls and gates around the school for additional safety and to build much needed toilet blocks which can have a huge impact on enrolment and attendance for young girls.
B1G1 is a social enterprise that facilitates our giving to most of these causes. We joined B1G1 to be part of a community of business people across the globe who meet, discuss, mentor, and help each other, while giving through the excellent B1G1 facility and leveraging the wonderful tools they keep creating to help members share the impacts they make. 100% of the money given goes to the vetted social causes listed on their platform. B1G1 sustains itself through annual membership fees, and that makes them sustainable, transparent, and awesome. Check them out. You'll be amazed.
