Alone we can do so little; together, we can do so much.

We’re back home in Phnom Penh after our whirlwind tour of Battambang and Pailin (and a few meters into Thailand)!

The catchcry of the retreat was “Alone we can do so little; together, we can do so much.”

These words reflect the way we view our partnership with CRDT. Without our teams of international volunteers every semester, we can’t run classes; without volunteers to teach classes, we have no students; and without students, we can’t generate funds to give to CRDT. Without these funds, CRDT’s ability to administer their rural development programs is restricted.

We’ll have more on the thoughts, ideas, challenges, opportunities and reflections we shared in the coming days, and of course, lots of photos!
