Pedals and Packs

What is Pedals and Packs?

Thirty years ago, Cambodia emerged from a brutal regime that resulted in complete destruction of schools. Since then, rebuilding the country’s educational system has been a top priority and considerable improvements have been made.

However, despite these efforts, Cambodia’s education sector remains blemished by limited access to quality instruction, inadequate school facilities and high dropout rates. Access to and completion of primary school remain a pressing dilemma. Getting to a school where students can complete upper primary grades may mean traveling far from home. Having a bicycle is more than a child’s wish; it is a student’s transportation to his or her future.

Each $65 donation to Pedals and Packs will provide one student in Cambodia with a bicycle and backpack – and one less obstacle on the road to an education.

The program cost is $3,700 based on double occupancy.  The cost includes international airfare, lodging, meals, site entrance fees, and English speaking guide.  The program cost does not include travel insurance, passport and visa, single occupancy lodging or gratuities.  Each year, the Wassmuth Center leads a delegation of supporters on a 8 day, 7 night journey through Cambodia. Beginning in Phnom Penh, the travelers visit the Royal Palace, the Killing Fields, and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. Spending one full day in the rural countryside, participants experience the excitement of a bicycle distribution when 150 students receive a bicycle and backpack. The journey concludes with several days in Siem Reap exploring the ancient marvels of Angkor Wat.
