High school students are invited on this once in a lifetime journey!
Cycle off the beaten track as we blaze through the glories of Angkor to some of the lesser known Khmer wonders. You will peddle alongside the Mekong river, through stunning rural villages, past rice paddies and then head southwards towards tropical Kep, before ending up in the hustle and bustle of Cambodia's capital city, Phnom Penh.
Along the way you will also have the chance to visit the two projects that are supported by PROJECT FUTURES. You will see first hand how your fundraising efforts help transform and restore the lives of survivors, or those at risk, or human trafficking and exploitation.
Specially designed for students (recommended years 9-11) and a parent or guardian, this challenge has been running now for a number of years, with schools including Loreto Normanhurst, Loreto Kirribili and St Joseph’s College.
This trip is an authorised Duke of Edinburgh 'Adventurous Journey' and the fundraising aspect also ticks the 'Service' element of the Silver Award.
These adventures have raised more than $300,000 to help PROJECT FUTURES eradicate human trafficking and slavery in the Asia Pacific!
