Between Jan and April 2011, GoPhilanthropic founders Lydia and John Dean and their 3 children traveled through SE Asia visiting all of the programs that GoPhilanthropic supports as well as researching other small grassroots organizations to add to the portfolio of programs providing effective and sustainable solutions to various global issues. During their visits, they met the beneficiaries of this year’s Grassroots donations that totaled over $10,000. GoPhilanthropic donors raised funds for 5 village water wells in Siem Reap, a community water system in Phnom Penh, scholarships for university students, assistance for women’s empowerment in Thailand, and several mobile libraries in Vietnam.
