When we have teams come to our projects, we encourage them to partner with one of the projects they work with throughout the year and involve their community. That way we are not only bringing people but also mobilizing funds to these important ministry projects.

Type of Work
The local church is thriving and is helping the Bunong process through what cultural values they should bring forward from their past (which included animism) while following their newfound faith in Jesus Christ.
We have a school feeding program and are active in the local school. You can read more about this project here: https://worldhope.ca/unlocking-opportunities-among-the-bunong/
This region has elephants and endangered species, see more info here. Also, here are some cool links on our conservation projects in this area: Jahoo Gibbon Camphttps://worldhope.ca/project/jahoo-gibbon-camp/. We are working to empower this people group to learn how to use the eco-tourism of the area to earn money for their families and community.
TapEffect seeks to tackle the lack of safe water access in Cambodia by implementing and operating a portfolio of piped water systems in rural and semi-rural areas. These areas are typically prone to climate change impacts and are also where logistical, technological, and financial constraints make it challenging for communities to otherwise access clean water.
Start Your Journey
Several months ago Tanya Nace called to chat with me about an opportunity for church partnership in Cambodia. Though while living in Cambodia I had only driven through a small corner of Mondulkiri, I was immediately intrigued and have found myself dreaming of the day I could visit this small community living on the fringes of Cambodia with a team from our church. The Bunong people in Mondulkiri province of Cambodia need a chance at quality education, nutrition and an opportunity to know Jesus and I am elated to think that Solid Rock Wesleyan Church from Mount Pearl, Newfoundland, Canada has been given an opportunity to partner with World Hope International to make that happen!
