This request was received in January 2012, is there an Australian Rotary Club interested in supporting this project by submitting a project application?
Stephanie Werner writes....I am currently on a volunteer assignment in Cambodia, as an Australian Youth Ambassador for Development. I'm working at a local non-government organisation called Khmer Women's Cooperation for Development (KWCD), who do some great work with vulnerable women, youth and children. I am trying to establish some partnerships and potential fundraising avenues and wondering if RAWCS would be interested in supporting our projects in Cambodia?
KWCD's main goal is to improve the standards of living and well-being for people in Cambodia who are vulnerable and at-risk, particularly women, youth and children. We run projects on HIV/AIDS/TB prevention, home-based care for people living with HIV/AIDS, family planning, human trafficking prevention and women's empowerment projects, as well as provide education and support activities that improve livelihoods.
I am here until July 2012, and during my time would like to not only do some fundraising for this wonderful organisation, but set up links with partners that can be sustained into the future. KWCD runs on incredibly tight budgets, and the money would really help many families we work with who are in great need, as well as create a more sustainable organisation who can continue their work into the foreseeable future.
We currently receive all of our funding from grant-based organisations and would like to expand this to other individual and private donors, and I believe there is potential to do this in Australia. Partnering with an Australian non profit such as RAWCS would greatly assist.
