Brox takes on Social Responsibility Partnership with Flame Cambodia

Meredith Brocklebank - Sunday, March 05, 2017

                • This year Brox has decided to partner with a Cambodian charity called Flame. We would like to invite you to join us in changing lives of young people in Cambodia.
                •  
                • As a company and as individuals Brox has always supported charitable endeavours both in New Zealand and overseas. This year we decided to take a step further and intentionally pursue our social responsibility plans by going into a partnership with Flame Cambodia.
                •  

                • 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.
                •  

                "We work with the poorest of the poor, with children who collect rubbish and beg, instead of being in school. 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 n eeds."

                • How we became involved
                •  
                • We became involved in Flame in 2015 when friends of ours decided to move to Cambodia to work for a charity who work in getting children out of child labour and into school. A simple task of building a website for the charity has become a much larger commitment culminating when Meredith was invited to become a board member of Flame. Since then our involvement has only increased and with it our desire to do more for children in Cambodia who are at high risk of trafficking and sexual exploitation as well as in child labour.
