Guests derive enjoyment from visiting this incredible part of the world and are touched by the Cambodian people. Many guests bring supplies from home to donate to the school including: toothpaste, soap, shampoo, pencils, erasers, pens, chalk, small notebooks, post-it notes, dry erase markers, and highlighters. What a simple way to give while experiencing another culture!
