The Tempo Group is a building company owned by Ben Comelli and located on the Mornington Peninsula...
Ben and The Tempo Group family are big believers in getting involved with communities both local and afar. Whether it’s donating trade skills and time or fundraising, they are committed to giving back whenever possible.
The team has a strong bond, not only being work colleagues but lifelong friends. They also have a real love for dirt bikes and getting amongst it. Being involved in the local community with the Mornington Peninsula Motor-Cross Club is part of their weekend’s activities, bruises and all.
Their journey to Cambodia...
In February 2016, 11 members of the Tempo Team visited Cambodia for a team motorbike tour and on this tour introduced to the Global Village Housing team.
And so the collaboration between a local Mornington building company owner and a motorbike tour operator in Cambodia started.
The partnership with Global Village Housing...
After a 1,300km journey from Phnom Penh to Siam Reap, enduring the heat and lots of ‘enormous’ insects, the Tempo team rode into a village in the Kampot area. Here they constructed two brand new homes and gifted them to two local families consisting of elderly grandparents and young children.
During this visit, Ben and the team were so inspired by the GVH team and their passion for this not-for-profit initiative, they decided this was going to be a long-term partnership with GVH and disadvantaged Cambodian families.
The perfect partnership formed, and together the passionate and dedicated teams from GVH and Tempo Group are working hard to make changes in Cambodia. Together our vision is to break the poverty cycle and transform the lives of impoverished families and communities in Cambodia
50 homes for 50 families...
The Tempo Group are excited to be partnering with Global Village Housing and are committed to raising $250,000 which will enable us to build and gift 50 homes for 50 families, purchase land for the community (schools or families), upgrade an existing school, provide sanitation and toilets, build water wells and provide other essential items and resources.
"We don’t know where this journey is going to end up, 50 homes for sure, but let’s not stop there. We have bigger than Ben Hur ideas with a long term commitment to GVH and the people of Cambodia." Tempo Team
Everyone deserves a place to call home, an education, clean water, sanitation, food and even shoes.
