Cambodia Induction Trip 4th-7th May 2023

Description

The Cambodia Induction Trip is not the same as a Hair Aid International project. This trip is a three-night, four-day trip, that will immerse you in the culture and let you experience life as a Cambodian would.

Accommodation is a five-star hotel, all meals; breakfast, lunch and dinner are included. We have local tour guides with us and travel in airconditioned vehicles. All entry fees to every stop are included.

This trip occurs only once a year and has limited places. 

This trip occurs three days prior to the Cambodia International Project.

The trip begins in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. Here you will stay in luxury hotel accommodation, for three nights. On day one, we will visit Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and Killing fields before lunching at a local restaurant that has ethical and sustainable goals listed as its values. After lunch, we will travel to an organisation that houses and educate young children. These children live in the slums but are supported by the organisation that educates them, sends them to school, and makes sure they have the best start in life possible. You'll be sharing some time with these incredible children.

From here we tour the local slum community and see how the locals live. We will be providing free haircuts for the children in care in this location, and we will be handing out gifts. From here we return to the hotel to prepare for our evening.  This is an evening of the cultural explosion of taste and dance while we enjoy dinner that has been prepared by a world-renowned chef.

The next day we will be visiting Handicraft rooms and speaking with the workers who have been rescued from the sex slave gangs or drug runners. You’ll have an opportunity to buy the goods they have personally made.

We will also be visiting a jewellery factory and hearing the story of how their work supports those that have been rescued from a life, less desired. From there we will be attending our location and receiving a Mock blessing from a practising Monk.

We will partake in a water ceremony and a flower ceremony before being individually blessed in the ceremony. After our blessing, we move on to lunch at a local restaurant that again supports people learning a trade in hospitality. We will then be attending a local dance school and learning traditional dance. Traditional musical instruments will be played, and artwork by displaced individuals can be viewed, while they are creating these masterpieces. We have special dining in the dark experience that night, waited on by blind waiters and hospitality staff.

The next morning, the final day of the induction trip, we fly to Siem Reap. Our final trip day includes visiting the local markets, partaking in a spa session, and lunch at a rooftop restaurant. Those that are joining our Hair Aid project immediately after the induction trip, they will join the rest of the team in Siem Reap.

For those that are not continuing on with the Hair Aid project, the Cambodia induction trip is finished, and private travel commences.
