Join Our January 2013 Bicycle Distribution Trip to Cambodia

Our Rotary Wheels for Learning January 2012 Team of Rotarians and Friends from the Gravenhurst and Bracebridge Rotary Clubs (and beyond) gave out 1097 bicycles to needy, rural Cambodian children.

But – there are many, many more children in need of a bicycle to cover the miles to school. Some children travel up to 10km each way to get to school.
You can be a part of this rewarding adventure by joining our 19-day trip to Cambodia to distribute more bicycles. The trip is planned for January 23nd to February 12th, 2013. Participants pay for their own airfare and ground costs. Approximate cost- $2,500/per person. Limit of 20 participants.
The trip is open to Rotarians and non-Rotarians. On this past January’s trip, we had a university student participate and also a former Rotary Exchange Student – what a great opportunity for youth!
