So I was digging through a few old photos and stumbled upon my trip to Cambodia way back in 2013, where we volunteered for an OCIP to help build a kitchen for a village High School.
Now looking back at it, was it really beneficial for the Cambodian Villagers to get a kitchen in their school when the previous batch from my school made a volleyball court which lay there cracked and unused?
Are we really “helping” these villagers by giving them mismatched clothing, stationaries, bags and what not? Or do we do all of these to teach teenagers “hey, be appreciative of your life in Singapore, you’re more fortunate than them!” Who was it for? Was it to help them? Or was it to boost our self esteem to feel good that we helped some villagers?
