ADRA Connections: Jombok Hoas Adventure Learning Centre, Cambodia
ADRA Cambodia have been developing the Jombok Hoas Adventure Learning Centre since 2004. In this time, thousands of people have experienced a new way to learning and developing their personal capacity and team spirit. Jombok Hoas is located on about 50 hectares of protected lowland evergreen forest and next to the village of Sry Thnong. ADRA is looking for ways for support vulnerable youth to receive training at JBH.
ADRA’s experience with early learning has provided insight into priorities for families. Cambodian parents typically value their children and want to have the best for their children, however there are often few opportunities for children to enjoy learning and with few adults who are have a good understanding of the needs of young children for their healthy development, children are often left to their own devices and not nurtured effectively.
ADRA Connections Trip:
This project, working closely with a local NGO, will bring at least 150 vulnerable youth (6 groups of 25) from poor households in Phnom Penh and local area to ADRA’s JBH in Preah Vihear province. They will stay on site for 3 nights, 3 days during which time they will be involved in an array of adventure activities emphasizing everything from team building and helping each other achieve goals, to creative thinking and personal self-confidence building as well as an environmental awareness component. The weekly program will be customized particularly for the needs of the groups with the support of staff members from the partnering NGO.
Moreover, the JBH facilities have been used for a long time and become old and need repairing. The group will involve in construction storeroom, painting, and repairing other facilities. We have JBH staffs who will lead the group to these tasks.
