Nearly five years ago, we were excited about getting a $20 donation and we still are! It’s true that we make every donation go as far as possible but it costs a lot of money to provide full scholarships, run a student center, operate a computer lab, send our students to the best schools and employ the staff to make all this happen. We are so thankful for the ongoing support that we have received and we look forward to your support in the years to come.
So, where exactly does the money come from?
Through our scholarship program, we pair up a student with a donor (or donors). These donors give us a yearly lump sum or donate every month. The students communicate with their donors (via the Savong Foundation) every three months through the letters that they write.
We also receive general donations from individuals that go towards our general expenses such as medical bills, repairs at the student center and school supplies.
We are very thankful to iHerb for their continued generosity. They are the official sponsors of the Student Center and they also sponsor several of our students.
LUSH CHARITY POT
Lush got our Student Water Pump Project off to a great start! They provided funds to build over 30 pumps in our community.
Cris and Tom have been incredible supporters of the Savong Foundation since the early days. They sell Cambodian products and donate the profits to NGOs such as ourselves.
