Thanks to successful campaigns in Doi Saket and Wiang Pa Pow, Thailand and in Battambang, Cambodia, we own almost all of the properties being used for our children’s homes in Asia.
This allows us to invest in these properties and make them ideally suited for our kids, adding learning centers, multipurpose facilities, sports fields and training centers as funding becomes available.
The five homes and our school in Phnom Penh, Cambodia still occupy rented facilities. As a result, we are unable to invest significantly in the improvement of these properties. The homes cannot benefit from geographical or financial economies of scale.
We can’t “build to suit,” and we risk losing our leases for each home every two or three years.
Beginning in the Summer of 2012, we will launch a two-phase comprehensive campaign. The first phase is a $825,000 capital campaign to purchase land and build out the property in Phnom Penh; the second phase will seek $500,000 to begin funding three strategic, long-term funds.
Inspired by the lyrics of the hymn “Great is Thy Faithfulness,” we’re calling this campaign, Strength for Today, Hope for Tomorrow.
This campaign will significantly enhance the quality of the comprehensive care we provide for the our children today and for countless future generations. To find out how you can help provide both strength and hope for hundreds of children, contact Seth Earnest email@example.com
