Volunteers from five Doha international and independent secondary schools are setting off on a seven-day trip to visit the ‘Reach Out To Asia’ funded music school for orphaned and disabled children in Cambodia.

The aim of the trip is to focus on cultural exchange of music and theatre with the Rota volunteers, participating in daily lessons at Kampot Traditional Music School before taking part in a specially arranged musical performance.

Students from Doha Independent School for Boys, Al Bayan Independent Secondary School for Girls, Qatar Academy, Gulf English School and Al Jazeera Academy will also be visiting Cambodia’s capital city Phnom Penh.

Cultural experiences planned for the Rota volunteers include a thrilling Tuc-Tuc ride around Kampot, touring a Durian fruit farm, visits to the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and Central Market, learning traditional fishing techniques on Kep Beach and exploring Cambodia’s unique salt fields.
