Australian Actor Matthew Le Nevez Joins PeopleStories As Charity Ambassador.
Renowned for his role as Dr Patrick on Offspring, actor Matthew Le Nevez, supports PeopleStories in its mission to provide education for children in Cambodia.
CAMBODIA – 2 February 2021: PeopleStories, a charity committed to providing education to children in rural Cambodia, today announces its new ambassador, celebrated Australian actor Matthew Le Nevez. In his role as PeopleStories ambassador, Le Nevez’s first priority is to raise awareness and funding for 120 school scholarships for the current school year and help PeopleStories to build a school to transform education for children in rural Cambodia from “chalk & talk” to a digital learning era.
Renowned across Australia and the United States, Le Nevez is one of Australia’s most loved actors, having starred across film and TV for over two decades. His roles in Offspring, The Kettering Incident and more recently, The Widow with Kate Beckinsale, have earned him many accolades. Le Nevez currently stars as Cal Isaac in Absentia, the hit series on Sony and Amazon.
Whilst brilliant in acting life, this talented actor is equally inspirational in real life. Having previously made noteworthy contributions as a management consultant in developing nations, it’s no surprise that Matt’s vision to make the world a better place resonated so well with the purpose of PeopleStories Charity.
Le Nevez comments: “As the first country I ever visited, Cambodia had a profound effect on me and I have felt a connection with the people ever since. I am extremely excited to join the team at PeopleStories and have the opportunity to contribute to this inspiring cause and, ultimately, change lives. As a father of young children, I understand the importance of education. I look forward to raising awareness, bringing positive change and helping PeopleStories in their mission to make young dreams come true.”
Victoria Miloschewsky founded PeopleStories in 2017. An avid photographer, Victoria travelled to rural Cambodia and documented the lives of its people through the power of photography and storytelling. These stories form the foundation of the charity – giving a face to the children and the families the charity supports. Setting PeopleStories apart from other charities is the fact that every dollar that is donated goes towards the cause – education for the children of Cambodia. Miloschewsky adds: “We are thrilled to welcome Matt to the PeopleStories team! His love for children and his connection with Cambodia represent a strong alignment of purpose. We both similarly built wonderful careers that are purpose driven. What unites us is our drive to make a difference in the lives of the people who need it the most. “
“The support of Matt as an ambassador will strengthen our mission to break the cycle of poverty through empowering children with greater access to quality education. We believe his unique skills and experiences will bring new perspectives and opportunities to PeopleStories, starting with the creation of
120 school scholarships for this year ahead.”
PeopleStories Charity has been providing scholarships, school buildings and facilities, bicycles, learning programs and teacher’s training to schools and students in rural Cambodia since 2017. To find out more and donate to this most worthy cause, visit www.PeopleStories.net.
