February 22, 2012: Happy Birthday to Jon Morgan, without whom, TLC would still be nothing more than just another really good idea...

Jon, it's an honour to know you and a pleasure to work with you.

Thank you, from all at TLC.



March 31, 2011:If 2008 was “the year of planning”, and 2009 “the year of work”, then 2010 will be remembered as “The Year of Testing”. We've been operating for three years now, please read our third TLC annual report.

May 20, 2010: We've just been given permission to post "Hope for the Fishermen", published in the February issue of the German magazine "Kontinente", written by journalist Ellen Köhrer and with pictures by photographer Kathrin Harms. Even if you can't read German, Kathrin's beautiful pictures give a very good impression of the work of the TLC-1 and life out on the lake.

Many thanks to the publisher of Kontinente for granting us permission to distribute this article to our friends and supporters.

December 17, 2009: For the second year running, simyo, a major mobile communications provider in Germany, has offered to sponsor a TLC staff member.

In 2010, simyo will cover the salary and costs of TLC midwife, Pheng Ya.

Once again, TLC is extremely grateful to simyo for its generous support of our work on the Tonle Sap. Our work would simply not be possible without donations of this kind. We also send our thanks to Uta Mühleis and the team at the RESET foundation in Berlin, Germany, who not only introduced TLC to simyo, but also have done so much to create awareness of TLC in Germany.
