The Cambodia Service trip holds a special place in many alumni hearts. The 2023 Cambodia Service Project departed last week for the 15-day trip, consisting of 112 students and 18 staff with their largest-ever volunteer commitment.
During the first few days of the trip in Phnom Penh students taught English to Cambodian children at Neak Krawan Primary School, had a cultural dance experience at the National Arts Academy, visited the S21 Genocide Museum, the Royal Palace, Killing Fields and local markets.
In the lead-up to the 2023 trip, students raised over $70,000 to fund different projects at schools throughout Phnom Penh and Siem Riep. At Neak Krawan Primary School students in Group 1 got to see firsthand how their fundraising went towards renovating three classrooms and new boarding accommodation.
It has been an incredible trip so far, with the students immersed in the local culture and embracing all the activities and experiences, they are looking forward to the rest of the journey!
