Singapore, 18 March 2012 – The first batch of Project Happy Feet Volunteer Leadership Experience, or PHFVLX, are ready to head to Siem Reap, Cambodia to make a difference to underprivileged children and youths, and also local Non-government organisations.
Designed to retrace the steps of the pioneers, PHFVLX empowers key volunteers of PHF to take up leadership positions in the organisation. The programme spans across three modules, covering important topics including self awareness through Emergenetics, policies and operating philosophy of PHF, operations of PHF, and more. The programme culminates with a community service trip to Siem Reap.
During the Final Prep Day held at NTUC Centre, the volunteers shared their experiences in fund-raising and reflected on important themes like leadership, communication and teamwork. The volunteers also spent time designing their trip to Siem Reap, shortlisting questions they would be interviewing the NGOs with, and assigning roles for each member of the team to take up leadership positions throughout the trip.
The team also pooled together some SGD2,600 earned individually through their time, energy and talents to their friends and family (such as baking!). In the same spirit of PHF, 100% of this amount will be used to purchase items needed by the locals.
The team leaves for Siem Reap on 25 March 2012.
Project Happy Feet would like to thank Young NTUC for its support in offering its venue for the Final Prep Day.
