On this trip, from Siem Reap we will travel together by private bus 55 kilometers to Phum O village in the Chi Kraeng district of the Siem Reap province where we will help built a multi-sport court. This trip will also include a tour of the famous Angkor Wat temples (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), pictured above!
You will be working alongside the community to build a court at the CCD school, which is part of the US based non profit organization, Global ADE. This is the second project in collaboration with Global ADE and Courts for Kids (click here to see stories from past Courts for Kids trips to Cambodia). The CCD school was founded by Sokhun, a Cambodian who had a dream of bringing education to his small village of Phum O. Global ADE has assisted Sokhun and together the campus now includes a school, library, computer lab, fields, a garden and toilets. There are currently 500 students attending CCD, many of whom are so passionate about learning that they come to the school on the free days to study and play. The court will be used constantly by students who have a strong desire to play sports. You will be staying within the community either with homestays or at the school. In either scenario, please be prepared for primitive accommodations. Food will be prepared by local Cambodian families so you will be eating authentic cuisine.
It is important to note that this court will be built with the community not for the community. The community members of Phum O, local leaders, and Global ADE are all very motivated to make this court a reality and from the beginning they have been the driving factor planning this project to see it come to fruition.
