Chumkriel Supporters Inc. Chumkriel Supporters (CS) is an Australian charity, which exists to support and raise money for Chumkriel Language School (CLS) in southern Cambodia. CLS supports a poor rural community of farm workers offering them access to education for life-changing skills and a brighter future. Unlike many other charities, every cent you contribute goes directly to the school. There are no advertising, overheads or administration costs. These are paid separately. No one at CS is paid – it is run totally by volunteers. Every dollar is vital to CLS and is accurately tracked and accounted for. CS is registered and publicly supervised by the Government’s Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Corporation (ACNC). Your donation is fully tax deductible in Australia.
Donate a little, help a lot
Without your donations CLS, and the life changing work it does, would cease to exist. It receives no government support or trust funding. Every dollar is important – and valued. Your donation will help the children and the community build a better future for themselves.
Education is the best gift that can be given, and Chumkriel Language School has been providing this to the community of Chumkriel for over 15 years. Classes for primary aged children from disadvantaged backgrounds teach basic Khmer subjects, English and health & hygiene. Evening classes teach English to a wider range of students, giving them a better chance of finding employment.
Our Khmer staff are working to help build a sustainable community in and around Chumkriel, where all families have adequate housing, food and work, and where children are properly educated.
At Chumkriel Supporters, every cent of your donation goes to CLS. There are no overheads or administration costs. All staff at the school are Khmer. They are mentored and supported by unpaid overseas volunteers. Chumkriel Supporters is an Australian registered charity and all donations are tax deductible
