2019 Youthlinc Real Life Refugee Scholarship Winners Youthlinc is pleased to announce a new…
Well the time has come. We leave for Cambodia on Thursday. It has been a CRAZY year to say the least, but we made it through everything. All the students have completed their hours, and now we just have to suffer through the pre-departure jitters until Thursday morning is here!
We had our packing meeting this Saturday and we were able to pack tons of medical supplies, over 130 feminine hygiene kits, about a million toothbrushes, lots school kits, 2 huge space bags full of clothes, and many other things the people of Cambodia will benefit from.
While we are in country, we are installing 100 water filtration systems, setting up a community garden at the school to supply the school with food, teaching lessons in the classrooms, providing a livestock capital of cows, pigs, and chickens, along with many other projects that will improve the quality of life for the people of Cambodia. I cannot wait to be able to work side by side with the people of Cambodia. I cannot wait for the friendships that will form between not only the people on our team, but with the kids and people in the village. It is the most magical experience you can ever have, and I am excited to be able to get over to Cambodia and get all of our hard work started.
I am so proud of our team already. Everyone has been working so hard all year trying to complete their service hours, as well as fundraising an incredible amount of money. All the fundraisers have been a huge success and everyone will be able to see the impact they will have on the lives of the people in Cambodia.
All past alums; wish us luck as we depart on Thursday. You all know the adventures that await us, and make sure to check up on the blog occasionally as we will be posting about our progress while in country.
