YouthLinc Team Makes a Great Change in Rural Cambodia, 2013!

Supporters like you and Rotarians from around the world are working through Sustainable Cambodia and Sustainable Cambodia Australia to help village families continually improve their quality of life with healthy water, nutritious food, health care, education, and sustainable income generation.

 With your help, more than 330 wells are providing safe water, more than 4,500 students are currently enrolled in Sustainable Cambodia schools, and nearly 34,000 Cambodians have been able to change their lives for the better. None of this would be happening without supporters like you!

Youthlinc Makes a Change in Rural Cambodia  

YouthLinc Team 2013
 
Youthlinc is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating lifetime humanitarians by offering students and mentors local and international service experiences.

A Youthlinc team of 36 students and 9 mentors from Utah, in the USA, arrived at Sustainable Cambodia to tackle a major project.

The project included almost every program at Sustainable Cambodia from clean water and agriculture, to health, education, and empowerment in the rural villages.

Each Youthlinc student and each mentor chose activities to participate in during their 10 day trip to rural Pursat. These included building bio-sand water filters, constructing a library, constructing a volleyball court and a high-jump and a long jump... 



...and repairing the school latrine... 


...and repainting the school ... 

.... and constructing Rooftop Rainwater Harvesting globes... 


...and providing villagers with pass-on animals, agricultural tools, seeds, and first aid supplies... 



...and giving study materials and bikes to students whose homes are located far from school...


 ...and finally teaching English to children and life-skills to adult learners.


The Youthlinc Team not only donated their money, clothes, medicine, and supplies, but more importantly they shared a piece of their hearts with the children and families. And upon returning home, some of them have individually sponsored a child.

Thanks to the Youthlinc Team for making this project happen! It is transformational for the rural villagers and children you have touched.
