Proposal for Interns:
A small, diverse, and international group of University students and local Red Road students will join us in a one-of-a-kind experiential learning opportunity in our rural Cambodian village. Together, they will spend three months collecting data, analyzing it with the cultural factors in mind, creating a customized sustainable development project, putting an actionable plan together, implementing it into the daily life of the village, and lastly assessing the impact of that contribution on the local community.
Phases of the project:
1. Research and an environmental assessment of the rural area in terms of Environmental issues
2. Evaluating factors in the community with a sustainable development goal
3. Putting together a presentation in the village translated/presented by our own leadership students in their own community
4. Working with interested community members on creating sustainable solutions
5. Putting a strategic plan in place
6. Managing themselves to see out the initiative with the help of village elders
8. Evaluation of Impact
We seek a mix of University and Master’s students with diverse backgrounds and skills to form a dream team abroad. All with the mutual interest of leadership and sustainable development.
Alongside our on-site team- Rachel Riggio (The Red Road Foundation Founder), Hong Da (Village Elder), Dara Roth (Leadership & Sustainable Development teacher at The Red Road), and Laura Quiceno Waltero (Master in Environment and Environmental Engineer).
