The Habitat for Humanity - Cambodia Photo Study Tour is an exciting, cultural experience that engages the global classroom. It offers students firsthand experience, shapes knowledge through cultural understanding, contemporary aspects of photographic practice and understanding of humanitarian organizations work in the field.
Habitat for Humanity believes in a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live, constructing houses provides donor families security, sanctuary, and a better future. As part of the Photo Study Tour, we will help construct a home, document the build, visit Habitat for Humanity programs in villages and produce visual material for their media, websites and marketing materials.

The course aims to develop student’s self-awareness and the ability to think critically about what they are experiencing, producing a personal body of work and written journal of their travels.
See here for a video about what to expect on a Habitat build project.
