“Trust is precious especially when it comes to donations or the act of CSR.” said our Founder Victoria and our true gratitude goes to Lloyd’s for backing our purpose. United by a shared belief of breaking the cycle of poverty through the power of education, Lloyd’s Asia has been proudly supporting PeopleStories ever since 2018.
Earlier this year, Jessica Tamman, Global Community Engagement Lead from Lloyd’s London, shared with Vic, “We’d love to bring together all our colleagues to join a PeopleStories virtual session, as part of our activation week.” This sparked so many ideas and Vic shared, “Our team really would love to bring the impact we make together in rural Cambodia to the Llolyd’s teams. Immediately, we wanted to involve the teachers and children we support to this event.”
Our children thoroughly enjoyed their first ever online event and their excitement filled the entire classroom. Certainly, having a chance to play a trivia game is always their favourite time! Veasna from our local team enthused , “We worked with teacher Socheata from Phum Ou primary school, who organised a traditional dance with 6 children as part of the agenda. These children were so proud to be able to show off their dance moves in front of a group of international audience.”
Vic closed the event by sharing, “We rise by lifting others. It is time to gift those who need it most.” which sums beautifully our partnership with Lloyd’s and what it means to the children in rural Cambodia.
Want to experience the uplifting feeling while giving a helping hand? Join Lloyd’s to create impact where it matters through CSR.
