Podcast Documentary Scholarship, 2008

Do you dream about being an intrepid journalist seeking out stories from remote parts of the world? Then here is the opportunity for you!
Go on assignment to The Fred Hollows Eye Camp, Kampong Thom, Cambodia

World Nomads will send one exceptional student on assignment to visit a Fred Hollows Foundation eye camp in the remote Baray District of Kampong Thom Province, Cambodia. In one of the poorest countries in south-east Asia, blindness is a real problem with limited health care facilities and an estimated 162,000 blind people. The Fred Hollows Foundation has worked in Cambodia since 2000 providing basic eye health care to remote communites and rebuilding medical facilities that were destroyed by the Pol Pot regime.

As part of this assignment, you will receive mentorship from ABC Radio Journalist, Executive Producer & Author, Tim Latham, who will provide assistance via telephone/internet with story development, scripting and final editing.

You will stay at the eye camp for three days witnessing vital cataract surgery performed by the team, restoring sight to local villagers. Gaining special access to interview The Fred Hollows team and local villagers, you will seek out your own unique story to be recorded on your new mobile digital recorder.
