Cambodia Building programs – Raw Impact Initiatives
Thomas Building provided sponsorship for two students to travel to Cambodia as part of team trips organised by Raw Impact. The teams, over 10 days, successfully contributed to the construction of basic housing for locals in Cambodian villages, as well as assisting with the creation of sustainable agricultural initiatives. The two students, Nikki Coleman and Ami Dique, appreciated the funding provided for the trip by Thomas Building, and expressed the whole experience as life changing for them as they got an understanding of the poverty and living conditions in which the Cambodian people struggle to survive.
