My first day here at the Children’s Community Orphanage in rural Cambodia. It is run by the Wat that is GSC’s project partner and central to this community– providing housing, health care and education for orphans and HIV/AIDS-impacted children. The Wat is allowing us to utilize their land to develop gardens as part of our sustainable food security plan.
The goal for the next six months is to get the Wat up to a certain standard so we can utilize it as a training center for the local community. Unfortunately, I can’t feed the entire orphanage within six months, but GSC and I will hopefully give them the tools to sustain this for years to come.
