Every Sunday, as part of the CCF youth leadership program, 18-year-old Sopheathtra visits the local Grannies and Grandpas to help them out where she can as part of her community volunteer service.
It means more than just visiting them; it is a way of communicating for self-development and confidence
“I have been volunteering to visit Granny and Grandpa for over a year. It’s a fantastic experience. They are like my biological grandparents,” says Sopheathtra, who is in Grade 11.
“It means a lot to me. It means more than just visiting them; it is a way of communicating for self-development and confidence. Before, I didn’t know how to start asking grannies about their stories. More than communication, it is a way of learning how to manage my time and cooperate with a team of people involved to get things done smoothly."
