Thanks for donating

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who gave to our #tfbloggers campaign. Forty-one people signed up to give regularly, and it’s only after speaking to a few charity fundraisers that I’ve realised how incredible that number is.

Team Yoomee

I decided to have a bit of a break from sharing things last month after the intensity of blogging on the move in Cambodia (110 posts in 2 weeks!).

It’s been great to spend some quality time with family over Easter, ride bicycles and get back into my job at Yoomee — we’ve hired some more people, knocked down a wall and started some exciting new projects. Here’s a little doodle of our current team.

We’ve just come back from a two day trip to Tonle Batie, a village an hour or so out of Phnom Penh. No wifi, no 3G, and a great opportunity to spend quality time with some generous people who don’t always have it easy.

Seeing for ourselves

Seeing for ourselves

Today was amazing. We went out of the city and visited two communities that Tearfund supports by providing Umoja training. In both places we met the facilitators who work with the local church to develop small projects that help the people around them. It was really inspiring and great to see first hand what people can do when they work together.
