Our Discova Educational Travel (DET) team has been working with the Knapor community near Siem Reap, Cambodia, for 10 years now, providing infrastructure and educational support where needed. We’re happy to say that the community has developed significantly in that time, so much so that we feel that we can take a step back here, but not before building a much-needed learning hub. This month we began building the hub for the local extracurricular ‘Forest School’.
What’s more, together with Grasshopper Adventures, we’ve identified another commune in the Siem Reap province that we would like to help. The Trei Nhoar commune consists of 10 villages who struggle with access to clean water, safe sanitation, quality education and economic stability. We have a couple of projects in mind that we would like to develop here towards the end of 2022.
What does that mean for your travellers? Your student groups can directly contribute to the success of these projects by participating in the fundraising, building, and development process. Chi Ngo, our Educational Project Manager, and Sopheak Chheang, our Educational Travel Operations Executive, reveal how visiting educational travel groups can make a big difference here.
