Tell Me Your Wish (TMYW) is a charity that I, my friend (Malita), and 2 juniors (Vuttei, and Phanny) created it up for helping children in Cambodia. The initiative idea was started from the time that we joined National Youth Conference 14th at National Institution of Cambodia.
At that time, we watched the children from one orphanage dancing on the stage with their smile and we clapped along with them. We thought that if other orphans, street children, or other vulnerable children have a chance to dance, to study like those orphans did, then there would be more smiling face from many children in Cambodia.
And Yoshi! After talking to each another about our commitment, we began our mission by drafting what we was going to do. We firstly found name for our charity, logo, the scope of our charity, charity place, and other necessary things. We spent almost 6 months for preparing our charity. Actually, we failed many times in the process of preparing. the failure here was also including the time that we planned to meet, and discussed, but we couldn’t make it due to our tight schedule. We used to feel awkward, and worried that whether we can make it or not. Should we go on or stop?
Thinking back to the previous time that we committed to help children, so we can’t stop, and we had to go on, even we couldn’t reach our target 100%.
During December 2014, we found 1 school at Arey Ksat called “Morkot Pich Primary School”* where lacked of thirty sets of 3rd grade books. Teachers there told us that they urgently need it since the new class had already started but the students didn’t have books to study yet. Therefore, we called on help from people we knew by promoting online. As you can see at the poster below, the poster was not that good since we are not professional, so we only made thing that we could do.
As you may note in the poster , we managed to go to the school on 18 January 2015 for donating the books that we bought by donation money from our friends. Besides donating that books, we also set up other activities in our agenda such as singing and playing game with students there.
It was our first time to conduct such a charity, and because of our participants, our charity activities went so well and it was so much fun. We specially thank to our donors, and participants who made TMYW charity fulled of laughing and smiling. Also, we hope that you will join us again in the near future. Again, let me thank so much for your donating and paticipation, and please accept our apologize if there was any inconvenience caused.
