“GLEF is an example of amazing team work. As we build our base, our board members, volunteers, partners, supporters and donors can count on each other to get things done in a transparent manner. GLEF and its partners are innovative and cooperative; we really appreciate the hard working and talented contractors in Cambodia helping us build a better future for its local children. In its first years, GLEF has set the bar high and I welcome the challenge to keep meeting its sense of quality and integrity.”
