AGENT GIVEN RAW DEAL
HELPING WITH CAMBODIA TRIP
SPONSORSHIP from Morley-based agency Harcourts Ross Realty is helping a group of John Forrest Secondary College students realise the trip of a lifetime.
Their service tour, in partnership with RAW Impact (Raising Awareness Worldwide), will see 15 years 10 and 11 students accompanied by two teachers travel to Cambodia for 11 days departing next month.
With an aim to make an impact on a Cambodian family’s life, the students will build a bamboo home with a corrugated steel roof and assist in an agricultural project such as building a fenced garden.
Leading up to the trip, each student is required to raise $1000 to go towards RAW impact projects.
Teacher Stephen Angell said the students had been hard at work selling chocolates, holding cake stalls, running sausage sizzles, organising a quiz night and seeking support from friends and family on their John Forrest Everyday Hero fund raising page.
“We are so impressed by these students who are giving up their own time to travel overseas and build houses for the underprivileged,” Harcourts Ross Realty coowner Paul Ross said.
