ACTS is starting a new family-style mission outreach to Kampot, away from the hustle and bustle of busier city living and famed for its pepper plantation. Located in Southern Cambodia and 3 hours’ drive from Phnom Penh International Airport, ACTS will run a week long programme during our June School holiday period to spend time with Cambodian young students and villagers from the Saint Augustine Kampot Archdiocese headed by Fr. Tavola Gianluca.
We will organise small and intimate groups for play, music, art and craft and fun English classes suitable for kindergarten students and Elementary Grade 1 students at several school locations. In one of the Kindergarten locations, there is a 8 hectare fruit orchard, where we will have a handiwork’s team to assemble class room furniture, build a small butterfly enclosure, to help harvest any fruits that are in season and to prepare them for sale in the local markets. And as always, there will be lots of painting (including mural painting) and simple repairs needed in the schools and church compounds.
ACTS will run free medical clinics at the schools and other catholic community centres in nearby villages of Chum Kiri, Prek Pros, Koh Sla and Phnom Voar to young and old and to some who have never been seen by a doctor or dentist before.
Restricted to a group of 30, ACTS is looking for participants between 14 and 65 years of old with the appropriate skills set for the tasks described, be willing to commit to a complete week from 2nd to 9th June, be willing to rough it out and more importantly, who are happy to receive the spirit of Christ in our services and to the people that we meet.
Sign up closes on 28th February 2018 (extended to 18 March). You will then be notified to attend a Mission Preparation Session where you can find out more about the mission outreach and what is expected from you.
