They say charity begins at home, but for us, it starts in Cambodia. Unfortunately, charity starts in Cambodia is a rubbish saying.
Gemma taught English for Riverkids Project back in 2009 and since then we’ve tweeted and blogged for them.
Riverkids project is a charity that works to prevent sex trafficking. This includes working with parents in order to get them out of the sex industry and into proper work, so that they can support themselves and their children.
They provide schooling to children who can’t afford school, vocational training for older students and even sponsor students to go to school and university where possible – all thanks to donations. This gives women and children the necessary skills to stay in work and off the streets.
This year we’re going back. We’ve been asked to train staff to write effective communications, teach English and run drama workshops for the older students, focusing on relevant social issues.
