2013 Trip: Vacation with a Purpose - Helping Hand for Cambodia
Dec 30, 2013 - Jan 11, 2014
This socially responsible trip allows you to experience traveling abroad in a way that benefits the local people. You will go beyond the tourist sites and learn more about life in Cambodia by visiting our humanitarian projects. We’ll spend time in a rural village. You will eat in restaurants that are training and empowerment programs for former street children, visit fair trade craft shops that employ landmine survivors trained as artisans, and will stay in locally-owned hotels that treat their staff well and prohibit sex tourism.
In addition to visiting tourist sites such as magnificent Angkor Wat, you will meet people who are transforming their lives and communities, including Women’s Self-Help Groups. A portion of your trip fee will be donated to the projects we visit. When you return home you will know that you did something to help people in Cambodia.
Trip Cost The group will be small (8 – 20 participants) in order to provide you with the best experience possible. The price per person is $2500 plus airfare to Cambodia.
