Cambodia International Human Rights Day Activities

On Friday December 10th, the local staff of IVHQ Cambodia organized two fantastic events for its volunteers in celebration of International Human Rights Day. In the morning, volunteers were invited to join Phnom Penh residents in a peaceful human rights march along the city’s scenic riverfront. IVHQ also invited children from several of the orphanages at which their volunteers work. The march concluded with a series of speeches (including those from the American and German ambassadors), dance performances and indigenous music. On Friday evening, IVHQ volunteers and local university students joined together at The Colonial Bar & Restaurant for a friendly human rights trivia competition. The trivia questions included those in categories such as women’s rights, labor rights and human rights history. They also served to address popular misconceptions about human rights. Although the questions were difficult, the participants rose to the challenge spectacularly, demonstrating the breadth and depth of their knowledge. In the end, a team of made up of Anna Buchanan, Scott Hoiland, Cassie Kimberland, Andrea Kurepa, Linnea Lindberg and Andrew Minney took the prize. Great work guys!
