Jamie C. Amelio is the founder and CEO of Caring for Cambodia (CFC), a non-profit organization directed toward educating children and training teachers in Siem Reap, Cambodia. While vacationing in Cambodia in 2003, Texas-native Jamie Amelio expected to be wowed by the temples of Angkor Wat. Instead, it was a 9-year-old girl panhandling for a few dollars who would change her life. A few weeks later, Jamie established Caring for Cambodia, which has since grown to support 6,600 students in 21 schools in Siem Reap. Jamie is no stranger to helping children. When living in Los Angeles, she served on the Board of Directors of Vistas for Children, and founded Junior Vistas for Children. In both 2005 and 2010 Jamie was awarded the prestigious Golden Hand Service Award by the Cambodian government, and named as a 2010 Classic Woman of the Year by Traditional Home Magazine. She is also the author of Stumpy the Crocodile, a children’s book about helping neighbors in need. After living in Asia for ten years, Jamie, her husband Bill, and their six children now live in Austin, Texas.
