The Cookbook Team

The ‘Offerings’ cookbook has been created by the volunteers on the Sdey Leur Schools Project, who have undertaken to raise over AU$90,000 to support the goals of the project over three years. Their aim is to raise over half this amount through sales of the cookbook.

The volunteers on the Sdey Leur Schools Project all have day jobs and it was these day jobs that provided the necessary expertise to produce the cookbook. This dedicated team has worked tirelessly on a non-existent budget for 6 months, researching and testing all things Cambodian.

Whilst a trip to Cambodia in June 2013 provided the team with the material to finish the book, it was a visit to the Sdey Leur schools that provided the real motivation and a gentle reminder to everyone that the funds raised from this cookbook will have a significant impact on the SeeBeyondBorders education program in Ek Phnom district.

Sdey Leur Schools Project

The Sdey Leur Schools project will support a cluster of schools in the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province over three years. Long-term support is necessary to ensure that the changes made are sustainable and can be integrated into the schooling system, leading to long-lasting change to education in Cambodia.

The Sdey Leur school is the core school with approximately 264 children, and the satellite schools of Prek Luoung and Sdey Krom have 137 and 120 children respectively. Included within the project is a range of teacher training, infrastructure and community support initiatives.

The project volunteers will also undertake a range of fundraising activities in addition to the ‘Offerings’ cookbook.
