Spitler School is fortunate to have some amazing women who improve the lives of children through their hard work, exemplary teaching, and administrative skills. In a society still learning the importance of gender equality, these women serve as examples and mentors to our young female students. We certainly welcome the opportunity to honor these women on International Women’s Day.
The Spitler School Foundation is excited to begin a closer collaboration with Global ADE. Global ADE is a US-based non-profit with a mission to strengthen and support education in Cambodia by funding programs driven by local community leaders. Global ADE financially supported the establishment of the Stephen Mazujian Middle School — the middle school where SSF graduates continue their education. Thus, it is only natural that SSF and Global ADE work closely together to align programs, to learn from one another, and use resources as efficiently as possible.
In late 2018, the founder of Global ADE, Kenny King, and SSF founder, Danny Spitler, began collaboration discussions, and Kenny King also shared his need to step down from his role with Global ADE. SSF was pleased to offer assistance with this leadership transition along with strengthening the relationship between the two organizations. In February 2019, the Global ADE Board of Directors elected Lindsey Oakes as President and elected Danny Spitler to its Board of Directors.
We look forward to exploring ways that our two organizations can continue to work together to enhance the educational opportunities of over 1500 deserving Cambodian children. We encourage you to learn more about Global ADE and the great success it has had over the years: https://www.globalade.org
We are pleased to announce the launch of the new Spitler School Foundation website, which coincides with our closer collaboration with Global ADE. Our completely redesigned website offers a new crisp design and a clear message of our mission and initiatives. We have also introduced new links to outside news sources sharing our successes, and a Partners and Sponsors page as a way to say thank you to those amazing organizations who help us further our mission. Finally, check out our Impact numbers spin higher and higher before your eyes! Those numbers scroll up because of the awesome work of our staff, volunteers, and your donations.
Please spread the news of our new website by linking it on social media, and forwarding this newsletter to your contacts. You can make a huge impact on our success by sharing about SSF with others.
Special thanks to our website designer, Christie Pink – Creation Haus.
