Every Registration Helps Save Lives of Kids in Cambodia

The Summit Survivor (and our host The Summit Adventure Park) supports Cambodian Kids Foundation. This Australian charity nurtures and supports underprivileged children and families living in Cambodia. 

Cambodian Kids Foundation provides education and health care to thousands of Khmer people through providing Kindergartens, Schools, Health Care Clinics, Women's Empowerment Groups and more. They also support many women and men through employment opportunities, keeping them out of unethical sweatshops and ensuring they can afford to feed their children.

In 2020, we aim to raise $50,000 for Cambodian Kids Foundation with $30 from every Summit Survivor adult and youth ticket donated to the charity.

This year we have a goal to raise $50,000 in support of  The Cambodian Kids Foundation.


Last year The Summit Survivor event participants raised $10,800 for Cambodian Kids Foundation.

As many Cambodian children die from drowning in wells and streams, with funds we built a swimming pool at the Soksan International School to teach the children how to survive if they fall into the water. Helping save the lives of children in Cambodia,

Cambodian Kids Foundation is a local initiative founded fourteen years ago in Victoria by Donna Cooper and her daughter Sam.

Donna and Sam Cooper traveled to Cambodia in 2006, hoping to spend a couple of weeks helping out an orphanage, like so many other volunteers - tourists do.

They fell in love with the country and the people but were horrified by the quality of some of the orphanages and other aid organizations that were working there. The Coopers decided to start their own foundation. With the help of the Woodend community in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, they started raising funds to build all of the amazing projects that exist today.
