A BIG thank you to Gracie and Grace of St. Anne's School for hosting a book drive for The Antipodes Collective!
As part of a school project they reached out to their own community and were able to contribute 183 books to our children's library in rural Cambodia.
They also created a Powerpoint presentation to share information about our organization, our goals for arts and English education, and about the lifestyle in Prasot village, Cambodia.
Thank you Gracie, Grace, and all the families who generously contributed. Your books will be enjoyed for years to come!
Lauren Iida, founder of The Antipodes Collective will be screening her film around Washington state in the coming months. Ticket sales will contribute directly to our work in Cambodia.

Journey to rural eastern Cambodia where the plows are pulled by water buffalo and the rice is harvested one tedious handful at a time. Meet the men who bear the scars of war and their children who work alongside them while optimistically looking toward the future.
Next, travel through the nightscape of bustling Phnom Penh, a vibrant city newly emerging from devastation of the 1970s. Set to a backdrop of rich, traditional Khmer music, this film is a feast for the senses and a glimpse into a different world.
Lauren Iida debuted this film at the Cornish College of the Arts EXPO ‘13 in Seattle.
