How far the money goes

P1060681 You would be surprised how far money will stretch in Cambodia. The villages usually provide a good deal of the labour and materials needed and in some of the community projects the villages raise part of the money (a good indication of how much they are willing to give to improve their own lives when their income is less than $20/month and for many, nothing).


  • $3 buys a new fuel efficient and less polluting family stove
  • $6 buys a school uniform
  • $10 pays a teacher for a week
  • $75 buys 100 English language workbooks
  • $180 pays for Health, Hygiene and Nutrition training for 130 mothers
  • $2000 covers construction of a dam

Other ways to help

Smiling teacher While we would love people to donate we believe that it is equally important for as many people as possible to have an understanding of the lives of our friends in these parts of Cambodia. Here are some ways you can do this:


  • See the schools

    If you are interested in seeing the villages while visiting Cambodia we are more than happy to try to set it up. Join our Cambodian team on their weekly school visit. Contact Soroth: 066 978767

    Two people who visited O’Rumchek school with the team were so impressed by the villagers and children and overwhelmed by their need that they contributed significantly and returned home to continue to fundraise for the schools. Mike Douglas from Wales has become a generous donor -

    Mitch Wuoti was an extremely helpful volunteer in 2011. He has helped with the construction of the shelter shed and new kitchen, aided with English classes and brought others to help.

  • Contribute in your own way

    Some people have come up with some fantastic ideas to help. If you have any of your own we'd love to hear them.

  • Some very generous and creative women from the Brisbane Chorale have formed a craft group – the Choral Crafters – and have volunteered their time to sew school bags for our students.
  • David Farrell is donating the net proceeds from the sale of his book “GREAT WEALTH POOR HEALTH” to New ERA Cambodia. You can purchase a copy or copies by emailing David Farrell at

  • Pencil Case Plus is a not-for-profit volunteer program created by Liz, Sam, and Emma Field to support New ERA. Its purpose is to provide basic stationery and personal hygiene items to children attending schools in remote areas. It achieves this through promoting the opportunity to donate a complete “Pencil Case Plus”, or contribute towards the cost of a complete “Pencil Case Plus”. Individuals and groups have a number of ways to donate to this support charity. Check out the web page for more details:

  • Tell others about us

    Telling other people who might be interested in visiting or contributing in some other way is a great way to spread the world and help others to experience what a difference we can make.
