Summary
Tara Winkler first arrived in Cambodia to join a tour group in 2005 and was taken to visit a small orphanage in Battambang. The children were living in extreme poverty, and Tara was determined to raise money to help them. Two years later, after fundraising in Australia, Tara returned to Battambang only to discover that the same children were in deep trouble. With a team of committed locals and support from friends, she established the Cambodian Children's Trust (CCT). With an instant family of fourteen children and three dogs, Tara had to learn a lot, very fast. And, along the way, she realised that many of the actions she took with good intentions were not at all what the children needed -- or indeed, what any child needs. CCT now helps vulnerable children to escape poverty and be cared for within their families. In this memoir, written with co-writer, Lynda Delacey, Tara shares the many joys and the terrible lows of her journey thus far
