Welcome to Kampong Speu Province!
During my YAGM year I will live and work with the NGO Life with Dignity in the Kampong Speu Province. My site is in a rural district near the mountains. Below are some photos to give you an idea of daily life at my service site.
I have also had the opportunity to explore the area surrounding my site. It is truly beautiful – rice fields, water, and mountains. What more could you need?
One of the local communities runs a community-based ecotourism site. This site attracts toursits to a nearby waterfall, demonstrations of Khmer cooking and crafts, and a chance to stay with families from the community. Recently I visited the waterfall with the cook from my site. The 3km walk was worth the view!
I encourage you to find the beauty in the moment, in the place where you find your feet.
With peace and a full heart,
