2016 COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS
Project Bloom II
Project Bloom II was founded with the mission to develop the potential of the land and community in Hope Village, Cambodia. In this second instalment of Project Bloom, the focus was on women empowerment for a sustainable livelihood. The women were involved in the making dried food and natural soap products with the aim to help these women realize their potential to impact their own families and community.
Project Cereal II
Project Cereal is a two-week programme in Cambodia's Kampong Speu, which aims to advance social mobility through poverty alleviation missions. On top of helping to build a foundation for their English language curriculum, the team worked on providing the students with adequate computer knowledge that will not only improve their employability, but also stir their curiosity and heighten their passion to learn.
Project Gazaab Nainital 2016
Project Gazaab Nainital is a student-led overseas community project held in Ramgarh, India. Focusing on sustainability, entrepreneurship and empowerment, this project aims to empower locals, especially women, with basic business acumen, so that they can start their own businesses to improve the sustainability of their current businesses. The goal is to help build a vibrant business ecosystem to bring about greater socio-economic development to the village.
Project Ket Noi I
Project Ket Noi is established in collaboration with Hearts of Hue, a Vietnam-based NGO, with the long term goal of helping the resettled boat women in Vietnam expand their businesses as well as improving the command of English among the Vietnamese children. This project is an extension of a past project, which taught financial knowledge to beneficiaries under the same scheme in the Vy Da commune.
