January 28th, 2008 · 2 Comments
A Japanese association that has sent Japanese volunteers to Cambodia to help educate Cambodian children in rural areas invited Cambodian students to join a party January 26.
Rainbow Bridge initiated the informal event in order for Japanese students and workers interested in Cambodia and Cambodians interested in Japan, where they are staying, to exchange and learn from each other their national culture. Also, it was meant for the Cambodian students studying in Nagoya and the Japanese to make friends with each other.
The association invited 10 Cambodian students and about 10 Japanese joined. They all helped each other cook both Cambodian and Japanese dishes, ate together and took quiz about Cambodia prepared by the Cambodian side and that about Japan by the association.
At the end of the event, the association showed a video they made of them volunteering to educate children in Kompong Speu about health related problems and how to stay healthy.
Rainbow Bridge invites Cambodian students to events like that about once or twice every year.
It has its office in the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP) back in Cambodia, according to Mr. Yamada, the president of the association.
