In February 2013, Tina came to Siem Reap for a second time. After the fist visit in November of 2012 Tina wanted to return with her son Lewis to show him some of the work being done by FWEC and to visit some of the families to whom she had donated wells. Tina and Lewis had the opportunity to travel to the countryside of Cambodia and see first hand the process of drilling a well. While traveling around Tina took the opportunity to donate clothing and school supplies to the children of the families as well as sponsor 2 girls in their effort to complete their education. One of the highlights for Tina was to be able to spend some time at the SRET village Secondary School and teach English to a very enthusiastic class of students. FWEC works in collaboration with the school to bring in volunteer teachers to augment the existing program. It is of great benefit to the students to work with native English speakers.

Ms. Maria Hicks' Evaluation December 2012
 

Maria shares her observations about the differences and progress seen between her vistit in 2011 and her current visit in 2012

In 2011 after a brief tour with Chantrea with emphasis on rural lifestyle, my first impressions included the following:

Lack of fresh water in rural areas even though there had been heavy rainfall in the region. Benefits of well water demonstrated. Extreme poverty evident in the countryside.
CWEP funding was focused on donations from tourists and their friends. At this time the education component included bicycles, some donated stationery supplies and the computer program sponsored by Labdoo Organization...

December 2011

Evaluation Mission to CWEP

Ms. Maria Hicks

In December, 2011, Mrs. Maria Hicks met Chantrea for the first time when she hired him to be her tour guide. In addition to the cultural tour of the region's temples he took her to visit the some of the sites of CWEP projects.  Maria had the opportunity to learn about the efforts of CWEP and the everyday life of Cambodian people living in the rural areas. At the project sites Maria learned a lot about how the poor people of Cambodia get water to drink. Chantrea showed her the wells which were installed as a result of the CWEP fundraising efforts as well as families that were in need. Maria saw first hand the pit wells that families dug in the ground to use as a water source. These pit wells were about 2 meters deep and contained water that was muddy and contaminated. She  also learned how CWEP works to help.

As a result of her trip to the CWEP project sites, Maria developed a better understanding about the livelihood and struggles of the poor people of Cambodia. The day before she returned to Australia, Maria donated the funds for 2 wells to help some of the families of Siem Reap. The wells were completed two weeks later and she continues to support the efforts of CWEP through personal donations as well organizing fund raising events in Australia.
