Project Cambodia 2015 is a campaign Land Over Yonder launched in March to raise funds to build a school in Cambodia. Their goal is to build a school house filled with the necessary equipment and supplies for children to have a quality school environment. The school will have three rooms that will be used to teach hundreds of students in 4th-8th grade.
Other than land, wood, and books LOY will also be funding the desks, pencils, notebooks, teaching staff, and uniforms for each student. In their previous projects, LOY has learned that they can further help the overall economy in Cambodia by hiring seamstresses to make the uniforms rather than just purchasing them. This way they are creating even more jobs and a sense of accomplishment in the community. Along with the school LOY will also be sponsoring the education of students for their entire first year!
In order to accomplish such a huge accomplishment LOY needs to sell 2,015 of their hats with all proceeds from their sells going to the project until they reach their goal. Ideally they need to sell all 2,015 hats by May 31, 2015 in order to have everything completed before monsoon season.
