What is this adventure?
Fill your senses with the sights, sounds and smells of Cambodia, with its changing landscapes and colourful culture.
Arriving in Siem Reap, over the next 12 days you will embark on an incredible cycling adventure, with every kilometre revealing new splendour.
From hidden jungle temples and sugar-palm plantations to ancient ruins and bustling cities, on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure you’ll cycle beyond the city limits into the unfolding countryside: through rice paddies, sugar-palm plantations and small villages where children run out to greet you.
Walk the tree-lined boulevards of Siem Reap. Gaze upon the magnificent spires of historic Angkor Wat. Cruise the waters of Tonle Sap Lake and experience the weight of Cambodia’s solemn past at Choeung Ek (Killing Fields).
In Phnom Penh, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the bustling streets of Cambodia’s vibrant capital city on the banks of the mighty Mekong River.
Best of all, as part of this incredible adventure, you’ll raise vital funds for Catholic Mission to continue facilitating education projects in Cambodia, and see firsthand some of these life-changing projects. With your support, together we can transform the lives of those living in disadvantaged communities.
What will my impact be?
Catholic Mission has a strong relationship with the Catholic Church in Cambodia, and the projects you will visit have either received funding from Catholic Mission in the past, or will receive future funding thanks to your support.
$75 provides daily meals for 13 children for one week, so they can receive vital nutrition to grow up healthy and strong, and to be able to focus and concentrate as they learn their ABCs.
$400 allows 33 children from disadvantaged communities to receive an education for one year in literacy, health, hygiene, human rights and also to be provided with educational materials such as stationery, books and notebooks.
$528 pays for the stipend of one teacher for two months. Local teachers, who know the dialect and the culture of the communities, manage the educational programs, so they can provide more efficient formation to the children.
$1,440 covers the cost of equipment and training for one local teacher for one year, so they can provide the best formation to children coming from disadvantaged communities and enable them to have a hope-filled future.
