Rosie's Birthday

Story

I don't celebrate my birthday very often — or Christmas, or Easter, or Melbourne Cup Day or any holiday at all. But this year, I'd like to mark my 32nd birthday in a more meaningful way (since I can't eat cake anyway). And I'd really love it if you could make a contribution to show how excited you are about my birthday celebration!

 

This year, I'd like to dedicate my birthday to supporting OIC - The Cambodia Project (http://oiccambodia.org/). OIC was started by a friend of mine in Cambodia called Weh, and I've been following him and his team's inspirational work there for the last couple of years, through good old Facebook and through their website. 

 

Maybe you've never thought of speech therapy being an important way of helping vulnerable people. I hadn't, until I learned more from OIC. Imagine not being able to communicate. Imagine not having anyone who can help you communicate. In Australia, there are over 6,000 speech therapists to help you. In Cambodia, there are none, and children who have normal intelligence are unable to go to school because of their inability to communicate. They can't speak, they can't get an education, they can't get a job. 

 

It's really rewarding to see how OIC are making a change, and through training doctors, nurses and other health professionals in speech therapy, they are turning childrens' lives around. You can check out Ling's amazing progress — http://oiccambodia.org/stories/ling/.  

 

One of the things that mean a lot to me is OIC's focus on "universally accessible, locally led speech therapy". Instead of flying in specialists, OIC are starting a university course which will see Cambodia's first generation of speech therapists graduate by 2020. That's why I want to contribute — this is a mission I really believe in. 

 

Please support my campaign, I've set a very small goal but I'm really hoping to reach it, with your help -— AUD $729 (July 29th, my birthday, get it?). The numbers aren't so nifty in other currencies, but here we go: That's only £350 (wow. Australia feels really poor suddenly). That's €495 and US $545

 

So if you would like to celebrate my birthday — please chip in the cost of a drink (or a birthday card) and make me feel loved, whilst doing some good. And in case you thought a couple bucks wasn't worth it, a little goes a long way in Cambodia. For example:

  • $25 will provide 10 children with speech therapy for an entire day.
  • $100 will allow 20 children to communicate with their family through special communication tools.
  • $1000 trains 30 teachers on how to work with children with communication and swallowing problems.

OIC Cambodia (Education) (Global Development Group – J703N)

OIC Cambodia (Education) is a Global Development Group approved aid and development project (J703N)  which aims to address the gap in health services in Cambodia for more than 600,000 people with a communication or swallowing disability.

Communicating with others is at the heart of being human and helping people communicate is at the heart of what we do. We are working towards a Cambodia where each of these people receives the speech therapy services they need to communicate with those around them, and lead full and happy lives.

We have two significant goals to addressing the speech therapy needs in Cambodia:


  • To train teachers in speech therapy-based inclusive education to better include children with communication disabilities into schools. This project will benefit 180 teachers and 5,400 children with communication disabilities across six provinces in Cambodia.
  • To graduate the first generation of Cambodian speech therapists from a Cambodian university.

OIC Cambodia is proud to be a partner for Project J703N OIC Cambodia (Education) with Global Development Group (ABN: 57 102 400 993), an Australian DFAT approved Non-Government Organisation.
Gifts over $2 with a preference for this approved development project are tax deductible, receipts issued by Go Fundraise on behalf of GDG. Excess funds may be directed to another approved activity. Please note, no non-development (evangelistic, political or welfare) activities are a part of, or funded by, GDG projects. For more information please visit www.gdg.org.au
