Give Trafficked Girls a New Future in Cambodia

A Weekend Adventure

This summer the Transitions Global girls took an amazing weekend trip to Kirirom, Cambodia. Not only was it a lovely get away from school and training, it was a journey into the forest lands of their country, a place most had never seen. Thanks to the generosity of a donor, we were able to stay at a hillside resort, giving the girls a chance to be pampered with special meals and amenities that most of us take for granted. The resort had so many activities for the girls, including a zip line over the forest that taught the girls about trust and the benefits of trying new things, even when it’s scary. They spent the weekend kayaking, zip lining, bicycling, playing games and we even had a bonfire with roasted marshmallows! The highlight of the weekend was a climb up Kirirom Mountain to the huge and beautiful waterfall there, which is a landmark of Cambodia none had ever dreamed they would see. It was a wonderful trip filled with beauty, adventure, friendship and growth ending with one girl summing it up perfectly, saying, “this was the best time of my life.”  Thank you Transitions Global donors for your faithfulness; none of this is possible without you!
