Volunteers

Meet the volunteers who are making this project possible.

This project combines two of my very favorite things: volunteering and traveling.  To have the opportunity to start an amazing project in Austin and then see it come to fruition in Cambodia will be amazing.  I’m looking forward to the journey towards the goal as much as I am helping a community in need.

I have always had a fascination when it came to cultures other than my own.  Sometimes it’s hard to learn just much we in the United States have and take the simple things for granted until we are immersed in the lives of others.  Even a single person can make a big impact, imagine a group of us!  In 2009, I was proud to be apart of Austin2Africa project and now am excited to extend any help I can to the children of Cambodia.

After seeing the excitement and passion that Roni had after coming back from Cambodia, it was easy to get swept up and compelled with the need to be involved in anything that she wanted to do.  The fact that we have the ability to make such a significant change with just a little work and time is too amazing to pass up.

Following the success of Austin2Africa and my recent visit to Southeast Asia, I couldn’t wait to start another project for Cambodia. It’s an unbelievable experience to  witness first hand what your hard work makes possible and how suddenly a distant place becomes a part of your life.  I cannot wait to see what this year brings!

When first joining the Austin2Africa project, I knew it was something that could really come together and make a small but significant difference – but I could never have imagined the overwhelming impact it would make on not only the orphanage children of Nyanga, South Africa, but on the volunteers.  This incredible past experience, coupled with Roni’s passion to bring another project to Cambodia, made it a no-brainer to get involved with Austin2Angkor.  I look forward to working with such a bright and dedicated team to once again make changing lives a reality.  “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” – The Beatles

Vanessa is our honorary volunteer based in Paris!  She is the founder of Austin2Africa, the project that inspired Austin2Angkor.  She is shelling out her humanitarian love  by creating some of our great marketing material and giving invaluable advice to our team.  Merci beaucoup, Vanessa!

    Hi Roni Sivan,
    my wife and I have also been impressed with Sedtha when we visited. We have made a small contribution but would like to get more involved.
    We know another Australian couple who share our feelings
    So we would love to get a better understanding on how you have achieved your successes in fund raising and volunteering activities.
    Maybe we could use your “formula” to do something for BFT out of Australia
    All the best
    Tony James

      Hi Tony,

      So nice to hear that you spent time at BFT, such great people run the organization doing amazing things. I will send you an email this weekend as to how we got started.
