TFC Fishing Community 7
Description: The community is located along the sea-string area about 30km from Kampot town so that children are facing difficulty to enroll the language, computer class or any other skills in town. We were suggested by community people to focus on English teaching and to provide some other education materials for children in these communities. In addition, there are also in need of volunteers to work on mangrove field. TrapaingSangke and Kampong Samky fishing communities plan to plant at least ten thousand mangrove trees by 2013. Hence, CYA see this as an opportunity for hosting international volunteers to work on this field.
Type of Work: • To engage with the local children and teenagers in daily work using English language • To participate with local community in setting up their eco-tourism and protect their mangroves forest and fishing area • To maintain mangrove forest along the sea string to prevent future flood by the sea level rising • To exchange and learn about Cambodian culture • Meeting people and children for socializing with the local residence on purpose multicultural learning and sharing • Organizing educational workshops with kids and teenagers • Collecting the mangrove seeds, nurse and plant them • Construct the walking path in the mangrove forest
Accommodation: Volunteers are going to stay in the bungalows provided at the campsite with assistant from a local host. The accommodation is equipped with simple sleeping mattress, blankets, pillows and mosquito nets. There are separated bathroom and toilet where the water is from underground. It is not very perfect but this is what the villagers use, and find it very comfortable for their daily life. The volunteers are going to cook by themselves using the kitchen built by the volunteers from the previous workcamps.
