Cagliero Immersion 2019

At the end of June, I began my Cambodian immersion. In total I spent 10 days in Don Bosco Technical School (DBTS) in Phnom Penh and the other four days in Siem Reap. Our trip focused on the charism of the Salesians and St John Bosco, service of the young. We did not build a classroom, rather we spent time with the youth of DBTS to learn about them and their day-to-day life, their struggles and aspirations, and to have fun and dance with them a lot!

From Ben in Cambodia

Since arriving in Phnom Penh, our group has stayed in a house on the 30-acre Don Bosco Technical School and gone on homestay from Monday to Wednesday with staff from DBTS. I stayed with Vichika and her family, who quickly became my ‘second-family’. To get to her house I had to ride on the back of a ‘moto’ or motorbike in a country with very little road rules. It became more and more fun after time!
