Steung Treng province in Cambodia needs your help!
Karpar is a platform game based around the Mekong river in Cambodia. As the name suggests (Karpar is Cambodian for protect) the character will protect the local Cambodian community by eliminating waste in various locations around the Mekong river. I created Karpar through a few months of coding on a gaming engine called Gamemaker studio 2. I want everyone to enjoy the game I made, so I allowed it to be played for free. However, I hope that in return you are willing to support the Karpar project with a donation.

During the February break in 2019 together with my team (20 students) we will be going on a CAS trip for service work around the Mekong river in Steung Treng, Cambodia. The Mekong river has immense biodiversity second only to the Amazon river. The species include some of the most endangered and unique organisms in the world. For example, the Orcaella brevirostris an endangered beak-less species of dolphin and the Pelochelys cantorii a soft-shell turtle are both found in the Mekong river. Unfortunately, the Mekong river is under a lot of threat (illegal wildlife trade, climate change and pollution to name a few) which is significant for the
animal species and 60 million people that rely on the river for their livelihood. Pollution and waste is a really big problem in Steung Treng (the local community where we will be doing service work) which is why one of our tasks is to set up a recycling system.

My team and I will also be aiding the local community in a specific service project. The community will allocate us a specific project where they require aid (for example building a classroom). Our team will be involved in labour intensive hands on work (such as mixing concrete for flooring) along side with professionals to fulfill the communities needs. Additionally we will be giving English lesson to the children of the local community, learning about Cambodian culture and the importance of the Mekong river. In order to provide the materials, machines and other requirements for the community my team and I need you help. All donations will go directly to the community and I will make sure to keep you updated (specific tasks we will be doing, photo’s, money collected etc).
