MWB Trade School -- Summer 2019 -- Cambodia
« on: October 10, 2018, 07:57:36 AM »
Hey guys!

I've talked about this with a few of you, but wanted to put it out for everyone. I was recently talking to a friend here who is starting a trade school. He personally grew up an orphan, but was given an education and found Jesus through a Christian NGO here. He ended up becoming a general contractor, has his own crew, and has run a couple of big projects already. Now he wants to turn that around for other young Khmer.

The school is going to have a lot of different aspects -- English, Chinese, computer skills, and all the different trades. On top of that, they'll offer Bible classes and general life skills development.

I know a lot of you guys have these skills, either professionally or through your own experiences. Is there interest in putting together a one or two week team trip -- come out, do some teaching, and probably get to go see some Cambodian countryside too!

Ballpark cost will be $1500-2000, depending on the dates.

This would be a spouse friendly trip, especially if they have any desire to teach kids or health/sanitation, etc. Probably not very kid friendly in most cases.

Who's interested?

I'm working on making this happen. Winter break or during the summer would work best for me. If we hold off till 2020 post spring will work for me as I won't have anymore class.

Right, forgot that. For now, let's assume sometime summer 2019 for planning purposes.

You keep asking to learn. This would be a great opportunity to learn.

Doesn't have to be technical skills. They'll need help teaching English (practicing, really), computer skills, etc. Or back up one of the other guys like Kevin.

This would be amazing!

With or without airfare?

What's the main language there? do some or most have a basic understanding of english?

I'm working an angle with my union to get a sponsorship for this. If it goes through I can't guarantee it will help anyone else on airfare but will try.

Including airfare. Once you get here, the trip will be rather cheap. Can be pretty comfortable for ~$30 a day as long as you're OK with asian food.

Primary language is Khmer, but many know a little English. We will have interpreters available as needed.
