Fundraiser success – $10k and fresh water for Svaychey Village


Every child deserves the chance to live and learn

Our inaugural fundraiser was a huge success. We raised enough on the night to fully fund a second water filtration system for Svaychey Village – a game changer for the whole community.

Construction has already begun on the water tower, and Zeynep is heading to Svaychey in late January to help with the build.

The support that Step2Foundation received during 2017 was both inspiring and humbling. Over the past five years the foundation has come so far, and it is your support that makes continued growth possible. Thank you so much.

It was a pleasure to meet some of our supporters at the inaugural fundraiser in Sydney on Friday 3 November. Almost 100 people gathered at the Pullman Hotel Hyde Park to celebrate Step2Foundation’s work in Svaychey and pledge their continued support.

From the gorgeous singing of acapella group Bel Canto to the wit of MC Gavin Glozier, the evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

What did we achieve on the night?

  • Raised $10,000 to fully fund an additional source of fresh, clean water for the community of Svaychey
  • Welcomed two new directors to the Step2Foundation board
  • Screened a video showcasing Step2Foundation’s impact in Svaychey Village (watch it below)
  • Drew the winners of our 2017 major fundraising raffle
  • Strengthened the foundation by building personal connections with the donors and supporters who make our projects possible


How can you help?

Regular giving empowers us to create long-term change for the kind and generous people of Cambodia. By setting up a regular donation you enable us to plan ongoing projects and maintain infrastructure such as classrooms and water filtrations systems.

Now is the perfect time to set up your regular donation. Your generosity will underpin the planning process as we move into the new year and ensure that Step2Foundation continues to change lives.

Help us make a difference in 2018. Every dollar donated makes a huge difference to a community who desperately need support to break an entrenched cycle of poverty. All donations over $2 are tax deductable.

Step2Foundation is proud to say that all donations go directly to projects that are targeted at breaking the poverty cycle for communities in Cambodia. As a sign of our commitment, our directors contribute financially to the foundation and self-finance their trips to Cambodia.
