Kuk Project - Youth Farming in Cameroon

From South East Asia, we have headed back to more familiar surroundings in sub-Saharan Africa where we are currently building an Agricultural Training Centre for the community of Kuk village in Cameroon. Kuk is located in the Anglophone north-western region of Cameroon, set deep in a remote valley where barely-passable access roads serve at leas...

Bomnong L'or Week 8 - Finish Line

After eight wet and challenging weeks, we were delighted to welcome the children who had so eagerly been awaiting the opening of their new centre. With a large number of local children spending the majority of each day either playing or learning at the community centre, there was much excitement to explore and discover the range of new spaces on...

Bomnong L'or Week 7 - Brick Sky

Last Sunday we began making plans for the final fornight constructing new facilities for the Goodwill (Bomnong L'or) Centre in Sihanoukville, Cambodia. A list of jobs was drawn up and a daily schedule pinned up on the wall. With a mere twelve days left and major components such as the roofing, floors and internal walls still not started, our pro...

Bomnong L'or Week 6 - Washed Out

It has been a week full of birthdays! We had four to celebrate, Ruth, Josie, Marie and David who is now back in Glasgow. We ate lots of green Cambodian cake and even made chocolate cornflake cake despite limited cooking tools.

Rainy season is now in full swing. Every day of this week we have woken to heavy downpours, with anything from incessan...

Bomnong L'or Week 5 - French Curves and Rulers

In the course of just one week, site has changed dramatically with fabric being stripped from cast concrete beams and columns, the maze of scaffolds and timber falsework dismantled and the introduction of large steel members and thousands of clay bricks.

The week began, however, much like those before it as we geared up for our last major struc...

Bomnong L'or Week 4 - The Big Pour

The fourth week of the Bomnong L’or project marked a miraculous turning point - it barely rained at all! The plan for the week involved pouring the concrete frame for the main teaching spaces and erecting the steel frame for the soap/IT building; both of these tasks were highly weather-dependent and therefore the sunshine was gratefully received...

Bomnong L'or Week 3 - Fabric Maze

Our third week in Cambodia started on a high, with the whole team back on site again after a rocky week of illness and injury. Morale was boosted even more by a new start to each day instituted by our site manager Woody- a stretch and aerobics warm up to the cheesiest 80’s pop music he could find. The wild flailing and dancing certainly helps ev...

Bomnong L'or Week 2 - Raining Buckets

Week two of the Bomnong L’or was supposed to start with a day of pouring the remaining concrete pads and slab for the foundations. However, the violent thunderstorm that began in the middle of the night persevered right on through for most of the day. This pushed us back a day with our pour schedule, but fortunately there was so much reinforceme...

Bomnong L'or Week 1 - Climate Challenge

Over the past year we have been gearing up for a large project in Sihanoukville, Cambodia. A well-known tourist spot, with long-stretching golden beaches, the city also has a less expatriated side. It is in this part, nestled behind a busy market street where we are reconstructing a community centre and school.

The Bomnong L’or (Goodwill) Centr...

SmartSTEMs Workshops

We recently ran workshops as part of the first ever SmartSTEM’s event held at Glasgow Caledonian University. Organised by Seric Systems in partnership with Beyonder and Women’s Enterprise Scotland, the aim of the conference was to inspire young women to take on STEM careers. It was a fun filled and busy day with workshops and stalls from organis...
