We are working on a very exciting project right now. The goal is bringing a veteran to Cambodia for 22 days of volunteer service. Then have the veteran enjoy a week of travel after all of his/her hard work. The goal being to help show exactly how military service can be utilized when veterans get out. Along with that, the sharing of a veteran'sspecific skill with someone in an impoverished country can help empower the people and the country.
The 22 days signifies the number of veterans committing suicide each day. There is a lot of awareness being raised on the internet with the 22 days of 22 push ups challenge. Expert-Exchange wants to take it a step further and go from raising awareness to putting a plan into action. Hence the idea of 22 days of volunteer work. This opportunity will be a beneficial opportunity for the veteran providing that veteran with the satisfaction of helping empower poor people with education and skills. Additionally giving the veteran the opportunity to travel to a beautiful country and experience their rich culture.
Besides this new initiative, we are working with a few local organizations and doing water well projects, providingeducation assistance and teaching projects, and in the future building projects. Recently, we have been working with a great organization run by Monks putting in wells and aid in rural villages. Personally for me being a veteran it has been very rewarding to be able to do this work. The people are very friendly and working with Monks has been extremely positive and a life changing experience.
The end goal is to show that Expert-Exchange as a charity has no race nor religion. Our charity is driven by the selflessness to help others and proactively change now so the future generations benefit.
More to come soon. We have 4 projects right now in the works. Videos will be going up as they are completed over the next month. Thank you for the much continued support. Look forward to having some veterans join me in the near future and get to work!
