tCambodia is an OCIP in Tembusu College that aims to empower Cambodian students by providing them with soft skills education and vocational training through our thought leadership and research. We work in partnership with Indochina Starfish Foundation (ISF), an NGO located in Phnom Penh that aims to alleviate poverty and inequality in Cambodia by increasing access to healthcare, sports and education for underprivileged children and their families.

We visit ISF at the end of every Semester (December and May respectively), where we will conduct an educational workshop for up to 30 students based on topics and content requested for by ISF and using materials we develop throughout the semester. During the trip, we also explore opportunities to strengthen our relations with ISF and to discuss how we can better contribute to social causes in Cambodia. Aside, we visit other NGOs to find out more about the local non-profit and community service scene. The interest group seeks opportunities to improve our beneficiaries' lives in any capacity we can.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
