WE ARE CKF!
More amazing people we would like to bring your attention to! Paul and Michelle from the Coach & Horses Inn Clarkefield . This beautiful couple have volunteered in Cambodia and sponsor a number of our little friends. If that wasn’t enough help in itself, Paul and Michelle also dedicate their time to plugging the foundation whenever they can, which has lead to lots and lots of random donations coming in, one in particular that helped CKF not only to establish a interest free loan and family financial assistance but also helps to keep it running throughout the year! Paul and Michelle and the beautiful staff at the Coach and Horses Inn are truly generous and selfless individuals dedicated to doing good in the local and global community! Thanks guys! You’re CKF heroes!
WE ARE CKF!
The first person we want to bring to attention is Faye Horsman. Faye is from Port Sorell, Tasmania.
She is a mother of 6 and grandmother of plenty. She lives at Port Sorell and her hobbies are gardenng, quilting and sewing. One of her goals is to contibute to a community event/fundraiser each year. When she heard about a trip that Latrobe High School were planning to go over and help CKF on a mishcam she got on board and decided to make the sporting bibs for the children at SIS. James (her husband) says she stops short of nothing but perfection and she always enjoys the challenge of doing something new - which making the bibs was.
Friends describe her as a humble, friendly and mischievous woman. Faye is CKF, she works hard with her own family and donates hours to community service. CKF is so lucky and happy to have people such as Faye behind us! Thanks Faye! You’re a Champion!
Hey Friends! CKF is relies upon the generosity and hard work of the ‘little guys’ The people that look after their own families, as well as their little child in Cambodia, the people who give up a coffee a day to donate a little bit to ensuring our projects keep running, the teenagers and primary school kids who talk about CKF and hassle their amazing schools into putting on a casual clothing day, the blokes who cook BBQs out the front of coles and Bunnings for us in rain, hail or shine, the wonderful crazies who run, ride and swim hundreds of Kms all in aid of CKF and what we do! CKF is an organization run for beautiful people by beautiful people. We’re not a huge corporation and sometimes we struggle to make ends meet, but we always do because it’s the little people with the HUGE hearts that always get us across the line and ensure everything keeps running smoothly. This week everyday we will be celebrating these amazing people by posting stories and photos on what they give up and do to help CKF. Thank you! You are generous, beautiful, kind, amazing, You are CKF.
Darlin’s first day of public school!!
Meet the most beautiful little Miss Darlin, Darlin is the youngest child of her family and she just started public school!
Darlin’s mother, Sy, works at our Soksan International School as the Art teachers Assistant. Darlin has always been at her mothers side, not liking to go anywhere without her - this caused a problem when Darlin went into the Kimyeng Kindergarten, but eventually we got her to come to Kinder every day, then we faced the problem again when Darlin had to move out of Kindergarten and into the Prep class! - but once again after some effort and encouragement we got her to come to school at SIS - so this is a really BIG deal that this little munchkin is leaving Mum and going off to Public School with all the big kids!
Sending our little ones to Public School is all thanks to our friends at Ivanhoe Grammar School (Official School Page), and very special families such as the Henderson Family and many other people who donated to help us raise the funds for our SIS Tuk Tuk school bus! which helps to ensure our littlest Soksan friends are safe when going to school and don’t have to worry about dangerous traffic, or riding their bikes home in the dark or pouring rain!!
Darlin’s public school and her schooling at SIS is all covered by CKF and the amazing sponsors who help to put our Soksan children through School - If you would be interested in helping us send more kids to school please email firstname.lastname@example.org (: (:

CKF’s new Media room.
Thanks to our friends at Ivanhoe Grammar School (Official School Page) we were able to set up our Media room at our Soksan International School. The first use for the room was our Anti Trafficking week where parents and students engages in a number of topics and activities surrounding the problem of human trafficking in Cambodia. The students have also started taking a few simple media inquiry classes, studying movies, listening and comprehension and basic film theory. It’s a great new space which we will be able to use so much and our kids and Soksan Village can get so much out of it!! So great (: x x
