Through the generosity of supporters of the Trinity College Foundation and fundraising activities, we are pleased to support the Trinity2Cambodia service trip by way of an award. The award exists to acknowledge a student who is striving to help others and willingly volunteers to support College life.
The Trinity2Cambodia Service Award will create an opportunity for a Trinity student to contribute to the richness and diversity of the College’s community through learning about Non Government Organisations (NGOs) abroad, performing volunteer work in Cambodia, developing new strategies to help others in need and their ability to strengthen community relationships.
