Team Leader

My name is Dana Farnell and this build in Siem Reap, Cambodia will be my 15th. My first Global Village Build took place in Honduras almost six years ago and I have been hooked ever since. These builds are a fabulous way to see the world, immerse yourself in the local culture and to work, laugh and learn with other adventurous Canadians and locals. Come witness how life changing a hand up can be for a family in Cambodia. No previous experience needed.
