On June 18th, I will be on my way to Cambodia. Once I’m there, I’ll be working for a non-profit organization called Neary Khmer, which translates to Khmer Women. The organization is based in Siem Reap, a city heavily visited by tourists who come to see the world-famous Angkor temples. Although the city has had a huge economic boost in recent years due to tourism, much of the Cambodian population, especially those in the countryside, continue to live in poverty. Neary Khmer’s primary work is to educate women in the countryside about health and nutrition. As of now, I’m a little unsure of what work I will be doing, but I will be sure to post it once I know.

**More information about Neary Khmer can be found at the Omprakash website under the Partner’s website.
