Dragonfly Transitions students visit us in Cambodia


Dragonfly Transitions Students in KBFC classroom
For the last five years, different groups of Dragonfly Transitions students come to Cambodia and spend three weeks sightseeing, doing volunteer work and learning about Cambodian culture and its people. This trip provides an unique life-experience to these students.

After some days visiting Phnom Penh and volunteering at the Elephant Valley Project in Mondulkiri Province, they arrived into Pursat. Their first stop was visiting our campus and then going to Kravanh Bright Future Center (KBFC) to meet the students and teachers.


As part of an ongoing initiative to help develop KBFC's students English skills, Dragonfly created an annual “English written contest”. Every year, Dragonfly students will take the winners of the contest (along with some teachers) to visit Angkor Wat. This initiative gives the opportunity for our students to learn and be rewarded for their efforts. With the help of Dragonfly, these kids could travel to one of the top landmarks in the world for the first time, something that wouldn't be possible without Dragonfly's help.

Not only Dragonfly Transitions students help with teaching English to KBFC's students, but they also donated school supplies and materials to 135 students as well as emergency food support to 40 students that will ensure that kids attend classes every day.

But Dragonfly Transitions students contribution doesn't end up in the classroom. They also donated resources to build a gate for our Agriculture Training Center, they install a shallow well, and they work really hard with our team and people in the village to make all these projects happened.

We couldn't be more grateful for their help and involvement in our projects. Here is a big THANK YOU to this amazing group of students. And some of KBFC students didn't want to miss the opportunity to tell us how they feel about this experience:

Our student Suy Breb
“I am very, very excited to be in Siem Reap with everyone and be able to see the amazing temples. I would like to thank the Dragonfly Transitions team for their wonderful kindness and support to me and other students at KBFC so that we can fulfil our dreams. We promise to study hard in return for their help.” Suy Breb



Our student Norn Sokny
“Thank you very much to everyone in the Dragonfly Transitions team for supporting me and other students at KBFC. With your support, we feel more hopeful to successfully graduate our high school and be able to go on to university. In the future, I hope I can have a good job to support my family and help my community.” Norn Sokny
