(KHNL) Honolulu attorney Jerry Clay and Straub Physician Kathy Kozak are leading an effort to build schools for needy children in Cambodia. The two friends became interested in the idea after learning about Journalist Bernie Fisher's efforts to build schools in remote villages in Cambodia. So far about 3,000 remote villages are without schools in that country. Clay, says volunteers can donate $15, 000 to help build a school in remote areas where villages have no education or schools. The Asia World Bank matches that donation with another $15,000 to help build the schools. So far about 200 schools have been donated and built.
The Cambodia Schools effort was started by International Journalist Bernie Krisher, retired from the Asia bureau of Newsweek Magazine Krisher will be in Honolulu to talk about the program on Wednesday June 14, 2006 at the Law Offices of Jerry Clay, 700 Bishop Street, Suite 2100.
