COMP397 Service-Learning in Cambodia

This is July, I am going to Cambodia, just like last year.
Together with 2 other colleagues and some helpers, we are taking 30 students from our university to Cambodia this weekend.  We will be splitting into teams to work with these 5 organizations for about 7 days: 

(1) Emmanuel Primary School, for children in poverty near the city garbage dump.

(2) Human Resource Development Center, a vocational school operated by a HK NGO. They teach certificate level IT and English courses.

(3) New Life Fellowship, a large church run primarily by local Cambodians. They offer English and IT training, among much other work.   

(4) House of Rainbow Bridge, operated by Happy Tree, a HK NGO. It is a hospital for 70 HIV-positive children.

(5) White Lotus, a shelter for trafficked girls run by 2 American lady missionaries.

We will be doing mainly teaching and training involving IT and English, for the local kids and young people.  We will help with the computer support and training for the NGO and church staff.  We will also help with New Life's outreach work at the slums and the garbage dump, by leading singing, dancing and games.  It is going to be very challenging. 

My friends: please remember us, the students, and the people that we will be working with.
