Our International Service Project (ISP)

Mission: To create change and opportunity for the critically poor families of Siem Reap, Cambodia through the technical talents, values and generosity of the AITC community

The International Service Project (ISP) and the idea of giving back have long been part of the DNA of the AITC. We completed our first project with New Hope in 2013 and have undertaken four more projects since then. AITC staff and selected students, together with skilled tradespeople of all backgrounds, fly to Siem Reap in Cambodia to utilise their skills, passion and enthusiasm to support New Hope Cambodia – a not-for-profit that provides free education, healthcare, and community and crisis care support for preschool-aged children and youth in Siem Reap.

Feedback endorses that it is an experience of a lifetime to travel overseas and give back.
