- We can do a lot of small things with great love - and maybe it will become a big thing!
- We are not blind - Eyes Open.
- One cannot look into the future but one can do something now so the future is worth living.
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.
We are working together with the Ponheary Ly Foundation (www.theplf.org). The sole aim of the PLF is to enable children to go to school and it currently supports 2400 children. Eyes Open provides funding for 600 pupils to receive a substantial balanced lunch every two weeks. Each child receives a breakfast, financed by the Ponheary Ly Foundation, but for the majority of them it is their only meal each day. You find more about our project here.
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.
Many a blind man sees more than the seeing
Not everyone who cries out, has something to say
Many a deaf person sees more than some who can hear,
Not everyone who stays behind is unable to walk
Some who are sick live long lives,
Some must change their perspective,
