Paleriders – Cambodia was created for people looking for something a bit different and out of the ordinary.
What’s so different about a Paleriders – Cambodia tour? Each year we run the Every People Tour for charity, which goes for 16 days and covers 2500 km. It touches the borders of Vietnam, Laos and Thailand and passes through 19 of the 25 provinces. You’ll experience the full range of what Cambodia has to offer, ancient temples, tropical rainforests, cool mountains, mighty rivers, sandy beaches and above all the friendly and big hearted Khmer people.
You’ll pay for your accommodation and meals as you go, the rooms will be pre-booked for you. There will be a choice of bikes, Honda XR250, Degree, Baja 250; larger bikes maybe available at request. Depending on the number of riders, we will have a support vehicle for most of the tour and our own mechanic for tyre changing and repairs.
To raise money for charity I run the tour at cost price, and ask for donations instead of adding on a profit margin. A donation of $50 USD per day per participant is expected. The last three rides have raised over $20000 USD and I’m hoping this year will be as successful as the 2017 ride, where we raised over $10000 USD.
This year the cause is Rural Schools Village Program (RSVP). It was started in the 1990s by Aki Ra from Cambodian Self Help Demining (CSHD) when he was clearing mines in rural villages. These villages had no access to education. A village chief approached Aki Ra and asked him to build them a school. Since then, the name “Rural School Village Program” has been created in order to raise awareness to this cause.
Their objective is to teach rural village children to read and write Khmer, and to do basic math. When they began none of the schools were recognized by the government. Today, 14 of the 18 schools are recognized government schools. Today, they teach nearly 2,000 children who would have otherwise had limited opportunity to access education.
They are making a difference!
These schools are provided by sponsors, donors, and friends of RSVP so that Khmer children (and adults) have the essential tools to educate themselves for the better.
