Learning AFAR is bringing travel opportunities to low income students in New York City, Chicago, Houston and the San Francisco Bay Area with scholarship support from the AFAR Foundation and the Pearson Foundation. KEEN provided more than 85 pairs of hiking boots to student who will participate in the summer 2011 program. Here’s a brief update from the Learning AFAR group in Cambodia.
“Check out the first pics from the Cambodia trip!! The students just left the Sambor District, where they stayed with local families and participated in activities at the local schools. They’re now in Siem Reap for their last few days in Cambodia, where they’ll learn about conservation efforts in that area, visit a primary school, spend a day learning how to prepare and serve Cambodian cuisine from a hospitality school that enables disadvantaged Cambodian youth to achieve economic independence using these skills, and then visit the temples of Angkor Wat,” posted Learning AFAR Foundation on their Facebook page (First Batch of Cambodia Photos).
