    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will see the missions in a different light, through a local. Learn tips and tricks of the best of the local communities secrets. Example: we have a variety of locally- grown organic food as it is agriculture driven community. Know about the different NGOs and social enterprise.

    On the weekends our school project is closed so you will be free to explore Battambang and other nearby provinces such as Pailin, Pursat, Banteay Meanchey and Siem Reap. We're only 3 hours drive from popular tourist attractions such as Angkor Wat but there is also a lot to see in Battambang. It's possible to take buses to get around but most of us prefer to rent a motorbike (around $80-$100 per month, or $6 per day) as this gives you a lot more flexibility to move around.
