Cambodia is known by many travelers as the country of “genuine smiles,” and touted as the friendliest country on earth. However, this country has a dark history. The Cambodian people are survivors of the genocide executed by the Khmer Rouge Regime from 1975 to 1979. It is estimated that during this time, approximately one-third of the population were killed. Cambodia is still rebuilding from this horrific period. In recent years, Cambodia has made much progress. It is now one of the fastest growing economies in Asia.
Today, travelers can experience a wide spectrum of Cambodian culture from the industrious capital of Phnom Penh to the quiet untouched rural countryside. Guests can witness a country rising from the ashes as Cambodians begin to rebuild the country from ground up with progress in education systems, infrastructure, social justice issues, agricultural practices, and community stability.
Please apply before September 6th 2019
