David Phipps –was sitting in the audience listening to Gary speak at a charity golf day in 2008. Inspired by what he heard, the retired engineer decided to visit Cambodia and see for himself the work we were doing. When he heard about our desire to build Graduation House he not only offered up his skills and gave us a donation to get the project off the ground, he took on the massive task of overseeing the construction of the complex himself. Every curve ball, problem and challenge has been sorted by David with grace and expertise. He has contributed endless hours of his time and regularly travels to Cambodia (using his own funds) to keep an eye on building progress. It’s fair to say that without Dave’s drive, expertise and commitment, the building complex would not be what it is today.
