Dear friends and family I am going on an immersion trip to Cambodia where we will be visiting Phnom Penh and staying for some of the time in the slum communities there . We will be working in the schools supported by the Matesabroad Foundation, teaching English and working on community projects to improve the lives of the families living in these communities. We will also be travelling to Siem Reap where we get to appreciate the rich culture and history of Cambodia. We will be experiencing the rural life of the villagers and visit organisations that assist victims of landmines and displacement. The goal of the trip is for me to truly experience the life of those less fortunate and increase my understanding of the issues that they face and gain an insight into my own future direction in life. My aim is to raise as much money as I can so that our donation will make a real difference to the lives of the Khmer people that we will meet. I would be very grateful if you could support me to achieve this important goal.
