Creating a brighter future
for vulnerable Cambodian children
through education.

CAMBODIA GRIPPED MY HEART IN 2007 AND HAS NOT LET GO.

After reading about young children being rented out for sex by the week, I was compelled to act. Crushing poverty and the threat of human trafficking are everyday realities for vulnerable children.

But there is hope.

Education interrupts injustice. Education protects children and sets them up for a bright future.  With your help, we are making it possible for vulnerable children to get the education they deserve.

SPONSOR-A-CHILD

100% OF YOUR DONATION GOES DIRECTLY TO OUR WORK IN CAMBODIA.

All of our volunteers meet their own travel and accommodation costs when working in Cambodia or in New Zealand and donate their time and expertise. Neither Denise Arnold, nor any of the Trustees or volunteers draw a salary from CCT or claim any of their expenses. They all believe passionately in what CCT is doing to put their own money and time in freely.

Where CCT does have administration costs, these are covered by the volunteers or by Lyon O’Neale Arnold, lawyers in Tauranga, of which CCT founder Denise Arnold is a Director. What costs CCT cannot avoid (bank fees and Xero costs) are covered by specific donations by individuals or the law firm.

Every dollar donated goes to the projects in Cambodia where it is carefully spent to get the maximum impact. Where possible supplies are purchased in Cambodia to support the local economy and to make our New Zealand dollars go further.

Trafficking is a tragic problem in Cambodia. Only the most desperate of parents would sell their child. Often they are deceived by empty promises of a better life for their child as a domestic worker. The reality is far worse. I am moved and motivated to help provide an education for girls to protect them from these harsh realities. I see education as the only real way out of poverty.

THE BESTOW SISTERHOOD
AND AN ORGANIC HERBAL TEA CALLED GENEROSITEA

In 2009, Bestow Founder, Janine Tait (Denise Arnold’s sister), combined her two super-powers as a dermo-nutritionist and skin-health expert to develop the Bestow product range and holistic skincare philosophy. Bestow offers a beautiful range of organic super-food blends, recipes and rituals to nourish skin from within.

Bestow celebrated the launch of the Bestow Sisterhood with a new herbal tea – GENEROSITEA. This beautiful rose-coloured tea is an organic blend of lemongrass, peppermint, hibiscus, cinnamon and cardamom.

All of the Bestow profits from the sale of Generositea are donated to the Cambodia Charitable Trust to support their wider projects like developing new schools, gardens and health programmes in rural Cambodia.

The Bestow Sisterhood is a collective of beauty therapists and skincare clinics throughout New Zealand who are creating a brighter future for girls in rural Cambodia by sponsoring vulnerable children and stocking the Bestow Sisterhood Tea – GENEROSITEA.
