Welcome to Women's International Group - Cambodia
We are an active group who bring a diversity of resources and experiences together for social, cultural and educational enhancement. We raise funds and donate these via grants to worthy community projects in Cambodia.
Our group is also very much about socialising and having fun. Throughout the year we organise numerous activities and events that any member can join in with. To find out more about our social events please visit our Facebook group at Women's International Group (WIG) Phnom Penh. If you are interested in joining please visit the Join Us page on this website.
The Christmas Fair is a popular Phnom Penh event and is our most important fundraiser. It also provides a wonderful opportunity to promote our work.
Our 2017 Fair held at CIS was a huge success. We are looking forward to next year's event.
We would like to thank all the volunteers and vendors. We would like to say a special thank-you to the students and teachers from NISC and CLEW. Everyone worked incredibly hard to ensure the day ran as smoothly as possible.
As information about the 2018 Fair becomes available we will post to our Christmas Fair webpage
Things are beginning to slow down on the social front as many of us begin to prepare for Christmas. If you are travelling over Christmas and New Year we wish you all safe travels.
The Best Things
One of the best things about belonging to WIG is when we get to hand over a cheque to wonderful organisations like the Cambodian Organization for Living and Temporary Care (COLT) - who will use the money to build a Septic Tank at their center. Well done COLT - pictured here Ally presents a $2000 check to Noah and Aga, and they presented this fabulous picture to WIG - drawn by the children at COLT
