Event description

Description

“Alleviating Poverty Through Economic Empowerment Opportunities in Cambodia” is a holistic, immersive experience. We endeavour to create a journey that “listen and learn”, thus opportunities are curated for engagement with local communities and organisations. This journey aims to develop in each participant an understanding of the complexities of poverty, foster connections between participants and organisations, and ultimately catalyse social action as participants are equipped with the tools, knowledge, connections, and mindsets needed to make a difference. The focus of this trip will be to examine the poverty issue in Cambodia and expose to the different ways in which sustainable and just economic opportunities are made available to Cambodian, and how they can be appropriately supported in their economic endeavours.

  • EXPOSURE - Visit slum communities and see for yourself the turmoils of poverty.

  • INTERACTION - Insightful sharing sessions by management and staff of social organisations.

  • IMMERSION - Reside among residents of Smile Village, and see first-hand why residents feel so empowered to bring themselves out of poverty.

The journey is organised in partnership with Solutions To End Poverty (STEP).
