剛完成一班比我年少十年的同學仔,今次,跟一班大我好幾年、有豐富出團經驗、合起來帶的旅行團肯定走遍全世界的領隊哥哥姐姐一齊回家鄉。

為了令前輩們可以將他們的善心發揮到最大,放下很多堅持,連被我視為最重要的briefing也沒有堅持要進行… 每晚沒有玩遊戲飲酒傾計,連午睡時間都不知何故地消失…但又依然1時多才睡,6時又要起床。

出發前都已經很清楚今次跟普通的group workcamp一定很多不一樣,好緊張,一直都給自己好大壓力,但又好多驚喜、好多突破。每一晚我們都檢討應該用甚麼方法去hold briefing和sharing,應該加甚麼元素、不斷調節,最後還做了翻譯員、leading role…還幫手教書,當起由中變英的translator再由當地義工翻譯成柬埔寨文…好希望各位可以在大家最舒適的狀態下體驗到我們的workcamp spirit。

最難忘看見大家由第二日將原本的分組打亂,不斷打天才波;夜晚sharing要分組指名才勉強說說。
到第三日分好一組組地工作,終於知道如何facilitate大家想做的事,好efficient;夜晚每個人更真心分享自己想法、體會。雖然大家用中文說,又深層次又多情緒又快,令負責翻譯成英文的我很頭痛,又drop不到notes,但見到開始找到workcamp感覺實在放下心頭大石,好欣慰。

Farewell BBQ,一張大長枱圍在一起又中又英地談天、玩,又跟日本camper們一齊洗碗玩。雖然有少少遺憾最棒的candle night deep talk說中文我又再沒耐性翻譯成英文,但都好開心大家放低boundary,像大學同學仔們般分享真心話。

經過今次,見識了這班領隊們在街市裡不斷買不斷思考尋找centre需要的物資,又瘋狂地被小朋友用爽身粉玩,肯肯定,他們除了想要搵啖飯食,仲好想帶好多歡樂給身邊人,令這個世界變得更加好。

好多謝dee相信我們,勞心勞力地將整件事背起,好努力去籌錢找人準備,帶領大家去完成目標,帶給小朋友另一個世界;更加多謝每一位哥哥姐姐的認同,貢獻自己龐大既網絡做好多好多,出錢出力又出心,無懼無酒店住無冷氣享受,烈日當空下付出無限熱心和耐心,又跟我分享各位的經驗和工作。

希望不止PTSA的義工之路可以一直一直前進,都希望每一位可以繼續堅持著這份熱心和愛心。

yeah!

I am not going to recap the whole thing in English but only this.

Since last June we start the group project in this workcamp and now, after the contribution from different parties, the condition is even more decent then all the other project site with shower room and my own million-star private room (which is a tent with mattress)! The happiest thing for me is having Khav Actions and Thai Roth Sorn as my translator now and always having your support to my volunteers… You even started to teach!!
I am not sure when I will come back again but hope that next time most of the kids could share with me in English; And I could understand mama’s simple Khmer!
Sorry to Thangdy Ricardo and Proeung Rachana that I couldn’t have ability to include you in every part and even put you aside during some group meetings… but still you guys provided support in even tiny things. Thanks for your best accompaniment. You are always my perfect partner!
