International Day Of Happiness

March 20 is not only the first day of spring, but it’s the International Day of Happiness!  With not one but two things to celebrate, we thought we’d share some things that bring us happiness:

Happiness is…hot lunches and full tummies!

Our Nutrition programs in Cambodia and Uganda ensure that children in our Education programs receive a hot, nutritious lunch each day. Read more.

Uganda: Forever In My Heart

Uganda.

It’s hard for me to even begin to describe our visit to Karukoba Village, location of one of our newest Believe in Me schools. I had longed for the chance to travel and see the beauty of the country as well as the people that Love Without Boundaries CEO Amy Eldridge wrote about just last summer, and I was grateful to have the opportunity to visit Uganda last month with volunteer Christina Lindseth. I knew it would be an experience that would impact me forever in a profound way. Read more.

Field Trip!

A field trip is always a memorable experience in the life of a child! At the end of 2016, some of the children from our Believe In Me orphanage school in Huainan went on a fun field trip with their teachers to the big city of Hefei.

The children were taken to a special ‘career center’ where they learned about a wide range of professions such as policeman, fireman, nurse, model, dairy farmer, and chocolate maker. Read more.

Meet LWB’s Director in Cambodia

All of LWB’s programs are completely run by local citizens in the different countries where we provide services.  This has always been a very important part of our mission philosophy, as we believe the biggest changes in a village or community come through empowering local people who are passionate about making a difference.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sokleng In, the man who is helping hundreds of rural children in Cambodia. Leng, as he likes to be called, set up a small NGO in 2014 to provide primary school education to at-risk children. Within a year, he had over 150 students enrolled. Read more.

Field of Dreams

For years, people have been misquoting the famous Kevin Costner film, Field of Dreams, by saying, “If you build it, they will come.” (The actual quote is “If you build it, he will come.”) But I just can’t resist misquoting it again because it fits so perfectly with our newest education project in Cambodia!

As we have written previously in our blog, Cambodia’s history under the Khmer Rouge was a brutal one, decimating the country’s education system and throwing millions into abject poverty. After the regime was overturned, the school system in Cambodia had to be rebuilt almost from scratch, and countless people grew up illiterate. Read more.
