OUR VISION AND STORY

Welcome to Kaleidoscope Child Foundation!  Our goal is to provide free education, life skills training and sustainable solutions to disenfranchised and rural poor children of underdeveloped countries. We currently serve Cambodia, India and Guatemala.Through ongoing fresh water well building facilitation projects, medical/ hygiene assistance, agricultural and life skills training, along with food and shelter provisions, we aim to assist every child we can in experiencing a better now and a brighter tomorrow.

BEHOLD MY PASSION

My life purpose gained greater clarity when I arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia in the latter part of January 2004. What started out as a routine sacred site journey turned into a significant part of my life’s calling.

The people who were a part of my tour that year experienced the unforgettable privilege of feeding some of the most destitute souls along the banks of the Tonle Sap Lake in this part of Southeast Asia. After careful instruction on what to expect when feeding hundreds of impoverished children, we went to local merchants to purchase appropriate, nourishing food. After clearing out three local street markets of everything they had, the total cost came to a whopping $86 US dollars. It was there alongside an empty vendor stand that one of life’s defining moments occurred. I realized that even I could do something to create sustainable support for these children who had nothing – a vow that would transform my life.

It has taken many years - many mistakes and set-backs, but the ultimate dream came true when I was approved in 2009 to open up a non-government regulated school within the Siem Reap area. Since then, donor participation has allowed everyone involved the sacred privilege to build two campuses serving children in Siem Reap and the village of Nokor Krau. These schools have multiple classrooms, bathroom facilities, a sewing center, fine arts room, a fully operational IT tech facility, along with an ongoing fresh water well facilitation program throughout the surrounding villages. Serving more than 600 students annually, we teach English, mathematics, tech skills, sewing, native Cambodian music, dance and art. We place strong emphasis on developing life skills training along with providing hygiene and medical assistance to the orphaned and disenfranchised children throughout the Siem Reap region.

 

I started Kaleidoscope Child Foundation, a 501c3 stateside non-profit foundation that aligns specifically with Future Khmer Child – the actual name of the non government regulated organization (NGO) in Cambodia, in order to fund these ongoing programs. 

Additionally in Cambodia we have constructed hundreds of fresh water wells throughout dozens of neighboring villages with a goal to provide at least one dozen more each year.

 

Every year our board outlines goals that will benefit the growing demands of our educational initiatives.

 

From 2010 - 2011, we started and continued holding classes out of two constructed outdoor pavilions. 

 

In 2012 we completed more classrooms and a sewing center with dozens of pedal machines, fabric and instructors  to create income for the school plus life skills training for any student interested in wanting to learn how to sew. 

 

Throughout all of 2013 we watched construction start and stop and start again on our two story Information Technology Center partially funded by a grant from the Together We Can Change the World Foundation. This building offers continuing advanced levels of computer training in preparation for quality job opportunities for our children’s future. We continue our fundraising to  maintain our yearly budget covering school administration costs, teacher salaries, medical support, food and utilities.

Through 2014 - 2016, we watched as our additional campus, our extension school in the village of Nokor Krau, began taking shape. Today with 5 additional classrooms completed in this village, our free education outreach has doubled the number of children we are fortunate to serve.

 

Also in 2016, through an intentional search through the Bishar region of India, we found a highly qualified administrator and begin the initial planning to expand our free education initiatives in the outskirts of the town of Bodhgaya.  

In 2017 we located an adequate space for a beginning class space in India, vetted a teacher, printed curriculum and advertised. Within a short amount of time we had maximized the space with 90 students.  

 

In 2017, we also traveled to Panajachel, Guatemala to meet with local village schools and explore opportunities to bring our mission to these amazing Mayan people. Serving alongside Jabel Tinamit Spanish School, we delivered 100 water filters to 100 Guatemalan families who were actively involved in literacy programs for their children. New yearly initiatives are already being planned. 

Our current and continued success is solely due to the ongoing support of our donors. We are committed in providing these resilient kids a chance for a better now and a brighter future.

OUR VISION AND STORY

1/10

From our founder, David Ault

Beginnings -​

My life purpose gained greater clarity when I arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia in the latter part of January 2004 as host
for a tour group. What started out as a routine sacred site journey turned into my sacred calling.

The people who were a part of my tour that year experienced the unforgettable privilege of feeding some of the most
destitute souls along the banks of the Tonle Sap Lake in this part of Southeast Asia. After careful instruction on what to
expect when feeding hundreds of impoverished children, we went to local merchants to get appropriate, nourishing food.
After purchasing three entire local street markets of their weekly inventory, the total cost came to a whopping $86 US

dollars. It was there, in that moment, alongside an empty vendor stand that one of life’s defining moments occurred.
I realized that even I could do something to create sustainable support for these children

who had nothing – a vow that would transform my life.

It has taken many years - many mistakes and set-backs, but the ultimate dream came true when I gained approval in
2009 to open up a non-government regulated school within the Siem Reap province.

 

Since then, donor participation, yearly travel groups, ceaseless fundraising and grants have helped build two campuses that
serve more than 600 children annually in Siem Reap and the village of Nokor Krau. These schools offer multiple
classrooms, a sewing center, fine arts programs, a fully operational IT tech facility, along with continual skills programs,
curriculum  upgrades, teacher trainings and so much more.  Emphasis on English, mathematics, tech skills, sewing,
native music,  dance and art fill the roster of educational opportunities.

Timeline -

 

From 2010 - 2011, we started in Siem Reap and continued holding classes out of two constructed outdoor pavilions. 

 

In 2012 we completed more classrooms and a sewing center with dozens of pedal machines and supplies to create income
for the school plus life skills training for any student interested in wanting to learn how to sew. 

 

Throughout all of 2013 we watched construction start and stop and start again on our two-story Information Technology
Center partially funded by a grant from the Together We Can Change the World Foundation. This building offers
continuing advanced levels of computer training in preparation for quality job opportunities for our children’s future.
We began an angel patron program to help sustain our growing budget in order to cover school administration costs, 
teacher salaries, medical support, food and utilities.

Through 2014 - 2016, we watched as our extension campus in the village of Nokor Krau, began to take shape. With
5 additional classrooms completed in this village, our educational outreach doubled the number of children we were

fortunate to serve.

 

In 2016, through an intentional search through the Bihar region of India, we found a highly qualified administrator and

begin our first steps to expanding our work in the outskirts of the town of Bodhgaya.

In 2017 we located an adequate space for beginning classes in India, vetted teachers, printed curriculum and advertised.
Within a short amount of time we had maximized the space with 90 students.  

 

Also in 2017, we traveled to Panajachel, Guatemala to meet with local village schools and explore opportunities to bring our mission to these amazing Mayan people. Serving alongside Jabel Tinamit Spanish School, we delivered 100 water filters to
100 Guatemalan families who were actively involved in literacy programs for their children. 

2018 brought a daring expansion in India with a trial afternoon program in the slum of Lakhanpur, also in Bihar.
This impoverished village of mostly farm laborers, had never had any formal educational offerings. We rented a small
cow barn and selected 30 children to come in the afternoons to begin formal reading and writing courses. In only one year,
the results were astounding. Comprehension skills and beginning math seemed to be easily ignited inside them. 

 

In late summer, Kaleidoscope and volunteers helped construct a learning center in the outskirts of Panajachel, Guatemala,
hosted a book drive for the Jabel Tinamit Spanish School  contributing more than 500 books, and hosted a medical
mission day in the village of San Antonio, Guatemala which  brought assistance to more than 50 men, women and children. 

And in the fall of 2018, Kaleidoscope joined forces with  Nicholas House, Inc in Atlanta, Georgia to address the educational
needs of homeless children in this major metropolitan  US city. By sponsoring summer educational field trips, providing fully stocked backpacks for homeless high school youth,  and hosting evening meals for families in this transitional housing
facility, was a rewarding addition to bringing our work  stateside.  

2019 began with a return to basics in our Cambodian  classrooms as we invested in revamping our curriculum,  
hiring an academic advisor and  placing greater emphasis on  supporting the teachers continuing development skills.  
And after a year of fundraising, we achieved a colossal goal  of obtaining land in the slum of Lakhanpur, India to  begin 
construction of this communities first school. Breaking  ground on May 12 th,  complete with a local  Brahman’s
blessing, we gathered with the locals and celebrated this  milestone in 110 degree temperatures.​

 

Gratitude

And all of this was/is possible because of so many people who have championed our work, generously donated, and
joined our traveling opportunities. Our current and continued success is solely due to the ongoing support of so
many generous hearts. 

Now, after many, many years, that first opportunity to serve on the banks of the Tonle Sap in Cambodia has blossomed
in ways I could never have imagined. We remain faithfully committed in providing these resilient, deserving children
a chance for a better now and a brighter future.
