Have you ever thought of going to Cambodia? If yes, here is your chance to learn the community and be immersed in it.  If not, this project might change your mind.  

Life Showcase is the name of the project.  It serves to tackle the issue of poverty from the grassroots level in the communities of Cambodia.  The intern will have the chance to get to know children that are less fortunate, and hold discussions with these children about their life and dreams.  If you are interested in journalism, youth empowerment, non-profit organizations, marketing, or photography, this might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  Interns will be creating videos and documenting the lives of these children.  Interns will also get the chance to learn the techniques of fundraising, write proposal letters to non-profits for support, and teach basic English to children within the organization. 

 On the plus side, the reception that is provided from their AIESEC chapter with the experience makes it more exciting!  If you’re thinking about it, apply to learn more.

"Actually I can describe my trip to China with one sentence: "I haven’t 

expected…” I haven’t expected that China is so similar to my country.  

I consider volunteering activity a necessary experience for everyone. We all live on the same planet and we are much closer than we usually imagine. Every day of my stay in China I learnt something new. Chinese people are very kind and polite, often smiling and more open-minded than I used to think before. Chinese children are very lovely and teaching is a very interesting work, but rather difficult at the same moment. Come to China and get an once-in-a-life experience!

——Andriy from Ukraine

This is the experience Andriy got from his exchange to China! He was matched to an project named “Dare to Dream.” What did he do, you may ask? He worked with local university students to teach children in rural areas.  He created activities and workshops in order to push these children to dream big and achieve more.  Explore China, educate the young community, learn traditional Chinese arts, change, and be changed.
