Projects you support while traveling this program:
A local family: As part of our commitment to help the local community, we always pay a small contribution when we visit a local home, have a lunch at a family’s home or when the family allows us to make use of any service or equipment they are able to offer us.
The Pagoda: A Pagoda is a community institution. If you had lunch on the grounds of a pagoda, or visited a pagoda and met with a local monk, we donate to that pagoda. The Pagoda usually uses the money for development of its grounds, which benefits the entire community they are located in as everyone is allowed to make use of the pagoda, its facilities and its guidance.
Kok Dong Community School: Even if you haven’t visited the Kok Dong Community School, we still support the school with materials, computers, and donations and any other materials and advice needed for the school to continue to develop the young minds of Cambodia.
