Ishikawa Ajet Charity Paragliding event are looking for sponsorship from YOU!
On Saturday May 15th 17 JETs and their friends will leap off Mount Shishiku (650m) in Hakusan. We’re raising money for CamKids (The Cambodian Children’s Charity). All the money collected will go to help street children and orphans in Cambodia.
If you’ve ever visited Cambodia you’ll have seen that as well as an amazing and beautiful place to visit, the decades of war, natural disasters and the AIDS epidemic have left it as one of the poorest countries in the world. Over half the population of Cambodia is under 18 and there are an estimated 52,000 children who have lost both parents. This growing orphan population, together with a high rate of child abandonment, means many children are forced to live on the streets and beg or forage through rubbish dumps for food. Many become victims of violence or the child sex trade.
CamKids (The Cambodian Children’s Charity) is a secular charity which aim to help children in Cambodia who are either poor or whose parents are not there for them. All the money you contribute will go directly towards their projects, including:
- the construction of new schools and orphanages
- the purchase of food, clothes and equipment
- funding for visiting doctors and dentists
- funding and support for teacher training in orphanages and rural schools
