Leap Forward for Art !

Beginning on February 29, 2016, Kasumisou Foundation is  auctioning  unique items to raise money for  arts programs for disadvantaged children and teens in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Kasumisou Foundation is a California based US 501 c  ( 3 ) non profit.

For more than 15 years, Kasumisou Foundation has offered classes to children and teens impacted by HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty.  We offer instruction   in traditional Cambodian dance, music and art  free of charge, helping our students to build pride of culture . Our  Champey Academy of Arts teaches students about their rich cultural heritage,    while building individual and  team skills, discipline and developing the wonderful talents of our students. Our program also offers safe and suitable jobs for high school and college  students  ranging in scope from apprentice teacher to guest relations , greeters and administrative tasks. These student workers, themselves from disadvantaged backgrounds, serve as peer role models to the children in our programs.

Our complete payroll list has 25 names but a large number of those on the list  are  young girls who study dance with us but who are sufficiently knowledgeable to be able to act as part time  assistant teachers a few hours a week. They are either orphans or come from families of very modest means so we give them very small monthly payments of $20 to $50 to encourage them to continue their study of dance. As such, they are included on our staff list, and so they also are eligible to  receive very basic accident (not health) insurance coverage under our group plan.

Our operating budget for this project   for 2016 is projected at  $45,000.


We are asking for your help to raise funds to continue these wonderful programs. You can learn more about us by clicking the links below
