BENEFITING: Journeys Within Our Community
Thank you to everyone who has asked about how to help support my new adventure!! I'd love it if you could help provide a college scholarship for one of the Cambodian students through Journeys Within Our Community. I've been working with them for a few years and will be spending most of June and July in Siem Reap volunteering in-person before I head back to graduate school.
Just FYI, the way that JWOC works is that the scholarship students also become the volunteer staff for the other community services that JWOC provides – Free Classes Program for kindergarten, English, computer skills, etc.; Safe Water Program for installation of wells, hygiene & nutrition training; Microfinance Program and others. So it's a really great sustainable, "pay it forward" kind of model.
Believe it or not, it only costs $500/year for tuition in Cambodia – and the cool thing is that if we raise more, we can pay for next year’s tuition too!
