Arrupe x Tommy

In 2017, St Thomas More College underwent its first trip to Cambodia in partnership with the Arrupe Centre. This centre is a Catholic centre under the patronage of Apostolic Prefect, Msgr. Enrique “Kike” Figaredo, that works to help people with disabilities access education, healthcare, and employment opportunities. In collaboration with this centre, staff and students from St Thomas More College went over to experience the life of another culture, whilst also helping the centre in many of its projects. Such projects included visiting local villages and having an active involvement in the education centres they have provided. 

In addition to this, staff and students were able to participate in the Annual Angkor Wat Half Marathon in Siem Reap amongst the disabled children that are housed by the Arrupe Centre. Following the reign of the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s, much of Cambodian soil has been riddled with untouched landmines that still remain active today. For this reason, many children such as those housed in the centre, are left disabled due to accidents caused by these mines. Following promises made by the government to make Cambodia mine-free by 2025, this event serves as a reminder to hold them true to their word whilst also raising funds for those affected. 

Due to its immediate success, the college hopes to maintain a strong relationship with the centre as this trip becomes an annual occurrence for years to come.
