THANK YOU in advance for all of your support! In January the Sperry’s will be traveling to Siem Reap, Cambodia to provide dental care and teach life skills to the Kulen Outreach students. Kulen Outreach is a non-profit education program in Cambodia focused on helping rural children receive a proper education. The children live in a rural area with no government sponsored schools. They come from farming families (85% of Cambodians are farmers). These families are so poor about a third (70) of the Kulen Outreach primary students don’t have any shoes to wear. Just by learning English, they can earn $15/day instead of $1/day which is the typical farmers pay.
Last year, while visiting Cambodia I toured the school in Siem Reap and met the Director, Chris Schoenbohm. Being a father of a 6-year old Luella, the school and Chris’ work struck a deep chord in me. Immediately, I knew I needed to get involved. I was amazed at the level of English the high school students exhibited in only two years of school at Kulen Outreach. This school is changing the lives of these kids and their families!
Ai-lien Sperry, DMD will be providing basic dental care to the 230 elementary schools students in the two Kulen Outreach primary schools located in the Kulen mountain area. Dr. Sperry will be providing dental exams and placing sealants on teeth to decrease the risk of cavities and improve dental health. In most developing low-income countries, the prevalence rate of dental caries is high and more than 90% of caries is untreated. She will also be teaching proper dental hygiene and providing hygiene kits to the children.
I will be teaching a combination of life skills, arts and sports to the 22 Kulen Outreach high school students that live at the Siem Reap boarding school. Luella will be assisting me with teaching classes and activities and assisting the students with learning English.
My teaching program includes: resume writing, first aid and CPR, bicycle repair, photography, Thai cooking, leather product design/ production and American flag football
ALL of the money raised will go to the Kulen students to pay for dental care and materials for the life skill and arts classes. All of the Sperry’s travel expenses are being paid for by the Sperry’s.
The Kulen students THANK YOU!!! Your support is greatly appreciated and is going towards a fantastic cause!
