Hello and thank you for following ‘This is Philanthropy’.
I have been living in Cambodia for 8 months now, based in the popular tourist town of Siem Reap, home to the Angkor Wat. During my stay, I have encountered many things that have changed the way I look at myself and the world around me. Through the long, strenuous process of self-discovery, I have realised my passions for serving humanity and as a result, I have decided to embark on a new mission.
As of February 2019, I will be heading out to the rural, sleepy town of Battambang, Cambodia. There, I will be working from the office of a school in a village. To say I am anxious, nervous, excited and curious would be an understatement. A move like this can prove to be of high intensity, creating an abundance of challenges.
I have set up multiple social channels such as Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn for uploading content every day, throughout my journey. I have also created a website for a blog that I will post regularly. I will link my social accounts and my website in the next few days.
To be short, ‘This is Philanthropy’ is designed to provide education and entertainment to those who are either interested in philanthropic work as an experience, interested in philanthropy as a career, or for those who lead much different lives but are still curious to understand and learn about a life much different from their own.
I will be providing updates from my experience, on both objective and subjective levels. I will give updates on certain projects or events that occur within the organisation, plus my own philosophical take on the experience at hand. I will strive to deliver content that is raw, deep and insightful, with a purpose to add value to your life. Thank you for following.
