Pictured are a group of dirt bikers from NSW Australia, these generous guys have donated $1500 to build a toilet block of 4 toilets at the local Government Primary School in Cambodia. The school recently accepted 90 of our Village kids which bumped up the attendance numbers at the school to well over 500 children. They had 2 toilets, the school does not have money to build more, nor does the Education Department so we offered to help. A regular volunteer with CHOICE, Leanne Balkin asked for help from her brother Tony, hence the organization of an event and the donation from the “Nuggets Dirt Bikers”. The toilet block is now finished and in use, the cost was just under US$1,600.00. The children and all of us at CHOICE thank you all for your help.
