What past Open Team participants have to say about their experience:
  • “I learnt about the real harsh environment the Cambodian villagers are living in and yet they seem to be contented. I enjoyed the ‘workout’ during the building of the house, using my hands to help others.”

  • “Open Teams is a good idea as people from different walks of life get to meet together and do something good. You make friends and you also get to accomplish your goals at the end of the day.”

  • “Not everyone is born into good living conditions and have access to good education. The people that OHF help are those who are really in need. It was a real eye-opener to witness how the villagers’ lives are and how much the construction of basic necessities make a difference to their lives.”
