The Cambodian Experience

The Cambodian Experience

Cambodia isn’t like any of our other destinations, it has a sense of peace to it from the moment that you land. Don’t get me wrong, I have been to Ecuador, Peru and Tanzania and loved every minute of each and every country, but Cambodia feels different.

The Camps Effect: Our Impact on Housing and Welfare

The Camps Effect: Our Impact on Housing and Welfare

It's estimated more than 1 billion people worldwide are homeless and as many again may be lacking adequate housing (UN Global Survey 2005).
