The Department of Social Work of Royal University of Phnom Penh celebrated the fourth International Social Work Day in Cambodia on March 16, and HFH Cambodia was one among the Non-Government Organizations that joined the celebration along with Social work students.
The event meant to encourage Social Work students to gain deeper understanding about the importance of making an impact in the society and to also encourage and inspire them to get more involved in social work activities. It is also provided the avenue to introduce all the Social Work students from different years to various NGO partners that that support their work and school programs. The students also took the opportunity to thank the NGOs for teaching their students and providing them the chance to learn, also to thank them for their dedication in serving many Cambodian families in need.
“This is such a great chance – our junior and senior students can come together in one place and get to know each other. I’m also happy and very encouraged that I’m able learn and understand more about the core values of our field of study. I have to admit that I get lost sometimes as I have been wondering what can I do with my Social work skill and which direction to go next after graduation, but this event has shown me the direction. I also appreciate all the local and international non-government organizations that have always been supporting us to volunteer and learn more about their work in Cambodia,” said Kouy Kakada, 3rd year Social Work student.
