Seeking a volunteer to help with a non-denominational Christian ministry near Phnom Penh, Cambodia called Jumpah. Since 2006, Jumpah has operated a vocational training center for woodworking with a dual purpose – (1) to train young men and women basic skills in woodworking that make them employable locally and (2) to operate a small shop where operating profits would support this mission and the greater Jumpah ministry – AIDS hospice, orphanage, and school.
The wood shop has many western tools and several locally purchased or manufactured tools. They have experience in turning, routing, assembly of chairs, desks, and cabinets, intarsia, and scroll sawing. Some examples can be seen on my LJ site.
If there is any interest in serving 3 – 12 months in advancing the WW vocational center and its mission, I would be happy to provide an intern request with more specifics as well as contact information. I hope this is not outside the bounds of etiquette for the blog.
