Every year, over 700 volunteers travel to CFC schools to make a difference in children’s lives. Staff and volunteer trip coordinators work hand in hand with each volunteer group to build itineraries and match each group with a ‘most-needed” project, all while ensuring that our students and our communities are respected and protected. Volunteers help to build and maintain campus infrastructure, work with students on English as a Second Language, and more.

Read on to learn about CFC volunteer experiences!
~ Ann Murphy Reinchenbach (California)
“Throughout the trip, I kept asking myself what service meant to me. It means recognizing someone else’s needs and putting them before your own. Helping others is something I’m really passionate about; all the privileges I’ve had in my life, give me the opportunity to make a difference in the world.”
~ Elle Epstien, 8th-grader, Singapore American School
“Simply put: The Amelio School is a special place. We hope the bright and cheerful new wall that surrounds the school is reflective of how beautiful it is inside. Our children enjoyed helping to paint, but most of all making some new friends and sharing the morning with the students. To see the benefits of CFC first hand was quite memorable.”
~ The Hanna Family and Spitznagle Family (Singapore)
Young people all over the globe are inspired to help our students. Some have made personal connections through service trips to our schools and school pen pal programs. Others have learned about us through research or personal contacts. The work they do is instrumental in maintaining our programs and inspirational to their communities.

Read on to learn why kids enjoy volunteering with CFC!
“Kids are kids. They’re all the same, and they have the same needs. Even kids with nothing can still smile.”
~ Maeve Binchy (Maryland) who has organized a variety of fundraisers (eg. bake sales, ‘dress-down-days’, pizza and ice cream sales) through her school to raise over $1200 for CFC!
“Most of us take for granted that we can brush our teeth, but in a place like Cambodia, it’s a privilege”.
~ Maya Sobal (age 12, Singapore) who collected over 500 toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes.
“It felt good knowing that we were collecting something that CFC students really needed. Now they can carry their books and homework in a backpack – just like we do!”
~ Tanglin Trust School students (Singapore)
There are many ways to get involved and raise awareness for CFC. Collection campaigns are an easy way for supporters, especially young supporters, to connect with their peers to collect items needed by our students and schools.
