Cambodia - Here we come!
As some of you know, Sheena Pabari and Nicky Burton are off on a 13-hour flight on Monday to support our charity efforts and see where the money we've raised for United World Schools (UWS) has been spent and to help the people of United World Schools in some of their schools.
Here's a sneak-peak of their itinerary:
Upon arrival they will be met by Le'ak, UWS Pnom Phen rep, will meet with them, and stay with them throughout their stay acting as translator, guide etc.
Day 1: Pnom Pehn - Holocaust Centre and the market (try and shake off the jet lag!)
Day 2: Head to Bun Lung (at first light) – where they will do some preparation for teaching and explore BunLung
Day 3: Travel to Ol Tuch – start teaching, meet the people, explore
(number of days spent at Ol Tuch is yet to be determined – depends on how much they can take, as there is no electricity, one water pump, back to nature type of toilet facilities (in the jungle) and outdoor hammocks for sleeping)
After a break they will then see some working UWS schools to get a vision of what their aim is.
Then back to Ol Tuch to complete.
Nothing is set in stone and schools and visits can change. This gives Sheena and Nicky three nights in a hammock!!
Some words from Sheena and Nicky:
Sheena - Really excited about the challenges coming our way, the personal challenge in overcoming the changes in lifestyle on a short term basis, especially whilst in Ol Tuch. Really looking forward to meeting the kids that we’ll be teaching and embracing the value that we’ll be adding. And feeling very fortunate to be given this opportunity.
Nicky - I’m very excited about this opportunity to visit Cambodia and see the great work being done to enhance other lives. I’m a little apprehensive about the cultural change but will fully embrace the village lifestyle. I’m looking forward to meeting the villagers and the kids we’ll be teaching. This kind of opportunity doesn’t come along often I feel very fortunate so to be selected and represent the company.
