It’s not an understatement to say that Mekong ICT Camp changed my life.
(Oh, also: under a year later, I got a job based on the knowledge I’d acquired there.)
I returned in 2013 to share what I learned with Open Development Cambodia, completing the circle.
Everywhere I go in Southeast Asia, there’s usually someone in our informal alumni network to check in with.
It’s made me feel very welcome in my exploration, research and travels.
Others are similarly enthusiastic. Here is a home-made film celebrating 2013’s session.
Would I recommend you apply? Heck yeah.
If you are at the intersection of information technology and social change, give it a go.
There are plenty of others who’ve also reaped the benefits. http://sketchmekongict.tumblr.com/
(And BTW? The deadline is April 05 — better hurry up!)
