Stories from the Slums is an evening of hope - hope that has occurred through the work of the charity Flame. Flame is a young, vibrant organisation made up of caring Kiwis who saw a need in the slums of Cambodia and chose to make a difference.
Phnom Penh has over 401 slums where children run barefoot through dusty, dirty alleys, and live in shacks. Flame focusses on inspiring these very poor slum dwelling children into education and seeing them thrive and excel to a place where they become all they can be, and potentially Cambodia’s future leaders.
For us, it’s not just what we do, though; it’s who does it. Our projects are dynamic and diverse, from putting water filters into slums to teaching photography, to a mobile clinic on a tuk-tuk taking medical care to the poor, all these are initiatives of our Flame young adults who live in the Flame Leadership Academies. These young people are now in university or tertiary training, who were themselves once slum dwelling, disadvantaged, trafficked or orphaned. They know hunger, they know poverty and having come from the hardest backgrounds, they are now resilient and strong, equipped with what they need to become the future leaders that Cambodia needs.
