    Rainforest Cruises


    The English library at Kampong Tralach Green School was created with the support of cruise proceeds to encourage learning the language. Prior to 2012, there weren’t opportunities for students in the village of Kampong Tralach Krom to learn English outside of specialized state schools or expensive private lessons unmanageable for locals.

    With your continued donations and support the Green School Project is now able to provide free-of-charge education of English, Khmer and computer literacy. The project inspires about 82 local children from the ages 5 through 18 years old to work and learn creatively with others for the betterment of the community and for their own futures.

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of November 27, 2022
    Note: Location is approximated. If you see a lodging that is misplaced or missing, please contact us .

    Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.

    Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
    • Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
    • The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

    Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
