Proposal for Interns:
A small, diverse, and international group to join us in a one-of-a-kind experiential learning opportunity in our rural Cambodian village. Together, we will spend time collecting data, analyzing it with the cultural factors in mind, creating a customized sustainable development project, putting an actionable plan together, implementing it into the daily life of the village, and lastly assessing the impact of that contribution on the local community.

2. Evaluating factors in the community with a sustainable development goal

4. Working with interested community members on creating sustainable solutions
5. Putting a strategic plan in place
6. Managing themselves to see out the initiative with the help of village elders
7. Implementation
8. Evaluation of Impact

A big gap exists between the communities in necessity and modern-day resources that can help and support them. Our organization is looking to reduce this gap and create benefits on both ends. Interns and volunteers would have the opportunity to get exposure to real challenges and needs of a rural community while the village would benefit from the interaction, knowledge and input of a holistic-minded team. 
This experience is a life-changing opportunity for students to implement their sustainability studies and eco-friendly ideas with community-based focus projects. The combination of the two worlds creates enormous spaces for creativity and innovation bringing progress and professional growth. 
Being in Cambodia will increase the connection with our natural system and strong self-evaluation, developing our ways of living and thinking.  
“Empowering the next generation for a sustainable future. Arrive as a friend, leave as family.”
