Eyes Open wants to look, listen and discuss. We are convinced that, as privileged people, we must bear the responsibility so that by “helping others help themselves”, great things can happen. For this reason, we wish to help our fellow human beings in Cambodia, who are in need on a daily basis.
The majority of the Cambodian population earns less than a dollar per day. By financially supporting projects by Cambodians, for Cambodians, we are helping for instance in building a school, renovating an orphanage and procuring educational materials.
All members of Eyes Open work on a pro bono basis. Our donors can rest assured that almost 100% of all funds donated flow directly to our projects in Cambodia. The biggest expenses, such as flights to Cambodia in order to visit our projects, are borne by each team member individually.
