Purpose and Philanthropy Siem Reap Field Trip

We are so excited to be able to share an amazing opportunity with you. We are heading to Siem Reap on our Purpose and Philanthropy Field Trip from the 15th – 21st September 2019.

“Taking part in the Purpose and Philanthropy Field Trip was one of the most rewarding, enlightening and memorable experiences I’ve been fortunate enough to have. Sally was an exceptional host/guide and her local knowledge of the area, as well the mutually respectful relationships she has with the Cambodian community, offered me a very rare and unique inside peek into a world I would otherwise not be privy to. Sally created an itinerary that steered us well clear of the usual tourist traps and opened my eyes to the real Siem Reap, and what a vibrant city it is! Visiting the various social enterprises and speaking with the locals who were doing remarkable things for their community was a real eye-opener, and made me even more passionate to continue to spread awareness and advocate for local empowerment in Cambodia and the work of HHA. Our visit to HHA and meeting Thai, the Director, and his team was a fantastic experience. They are such a warm and generous team who are incredibly passionate about helping their community, and that passion was contagious. I came back from the trip even more in awe of what HHA does and highly recommend this opportunity to anyone who is lucky enough to be offered it.” – Georgia Harley
