In the summer of 2016 a number of our Year 11-13 students headed off on the trip of a lifetime to Cambodia and Northern Thailand. As well as trekking through jungles and camping out under the stars they will be volunteering with an organisation called Working for Children, at the Rainbow Orphanage in the village of Ka Ektom, Siem Riep Province, Cambodia.
Working for Children (WFC) is a Khmer volunteer staffed organisation that assists vulnerable children, orphans, their families, and rural schools in Siem Reap province. Founded in 2007 as a registered local NGO, WFC selected a location in rural Siem Reap for its work in the Prasat Bakong, Puok and Banteau Srei districts.
Their mission is to ensure that less fortunate children in the rural community are cared for and given educational opportunities which will enable them to break out of the cycle of poverty.
