I've posted previously about our recent week in Cambodia with Habitat For Humanity building 10 homes for disadvantaged families. It was an eye opening and life changing experience for many of our partners and a week that none of us will forget.
It was hard, back-breaking work in the 35+C heat but hugely rewarding for us to work collaboratively alongside these families to make such a huge difference to their lives.
Steven Yen from our People & Culture team has done an amazing job putting together a website that tells our story (see attached extract and link below), as well as a short video: https://vimeo.com/136900107/

On 20 July 2015, 135 leaders from Grant Thornton Australia, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Australia, gathered in Phnom Penh to build homes for disadvantaged families.Over the next five days we pushed ourselves physically and emotionally for a greater cause. The comfort of our air-conditioned offices was exchanged for heat and humidity as we worked to build not just houses, but homes. We learned to work to each other’s strengths and experienced the power of collaboration.We connected with the country, its history, the families and their hope. In connecting with their dreams, we delivered more than we ever thought we could. Crucially, we defined ourselves better as individuals and as leaders. This is our story.
