NYPS Service Learning Trip to UNACAS Orphanage Cambodia 2013


NYPS is organising our 5th Service Learning Trip to Cambodia this December and we will be partnering with YMCA to help the underprivileged children at Unaccompanied Association (UNACAS) orphanage which consists of orphans, abused children and children from single parent families. We will also be helping out in the building of homes for the needy families located in a village near the orphanage. This will be our third time collaborating with our school parents and their children in our NYPS Service Learning Trip to Cambodia to help the underprivileged children and villagers. Due to space constraints, we can only accept up to 10 children and 20 adults for this trip and hence it will be a "first-come-first-get" basis. 

The details of the trip are as follows :

Date : 1 to 8 Dec 2013

Place : UNACAS Orphanage, Lechwat Village, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Airline : Silk Air

Cost* : $1090 nett (child below 12 yrs old)
$1165 nett (adult) 

Project : 1) Conduct basic English lessons based on YMCA English Language Programme at UNACAS
                      2) Building of homes for the needy families in a nearby village
         3) Feeding Programme at Phnom Penh

Lodging : 3* hotel in Phnom Penh

Deadline : End of July 2013

Contact person : Mrs Nancy Lum (email @ soh_siew_hong@nyps.edu.sg) or  6467 2677 (office)

*The cost will cover the air fare, land transportation, lodging ,food, sight-seeing sites and Chartis travel insurance. Do email Mrs Nancy Lum your interest so that she can email you the necessary documents to fill in. In addition, there will be a pre-trip briefing at least 1 week before (3rd week of Nov) the actual trip. 
Lastly and most importantly, we need to raise US$6 000 for the building costs of the homes in the village. If you and your family are unable to join us in this trip, you may like to help us in raising some funds for the building costs. You can write a cheque to "Nanyang Primary School" and at the back of the cheque, you can state "Service Learning Trip to Cambodia 2013".
