Hmmm. Let's see...2020...our son blessed us with a wonderful daughter-in-law at their wedding in Palm Springs...that's about everything worth remembering.
As for the Pepper Project, we worked to fill online orders for our customers here and keep fulfilling the needs of our friends, vendors and, most importantly, the students, in Cambodia.
Kudos go out to the staff and teachers at Kep International School for keeping the learning happening in that small village. While schools were ordered to be shut down, the administrator, Melissa Kelsey, and her dedicated staff worked to get these young students connected remotely for online learning. No small feat.
In a place where connectivity is spotty at best and where computers are a luxury, Melissa managed to keep her students engaged and excited thus minimizing the loss of learning. Oh, and did I mention, she did all this while having to vacate the school and relocate to their current (and superior) location.
We are proud to support Kep International School with donations going toward the many needs of the students. This school is making a difference in the lives of these kids and in the future of Cambodia.
