We have donated two computers to the program which assists the Treak community center's computer program (one of the affiliates) so that children have the opportunity to make a living wage.
If you have any laptop computer that you would be wiling to donate, please contact us and we will deliver them to the school on our next trip if you are not able to join us in person.
Children learn computer skills that create opportunities for future paying jobs.
Benefiting: Pnheary Ly Foundation
We donated a kitchen that feeds hundreds of children every day, supplying the only guaranteed nourishing meal these children will see each day.
New prosthetics, health support and education.
Benefiting: The Ponheary Ly Foundation
With the help of travelers like you, Destination Earth facilitated the building of the bridge to allow Children to get to school by crossing a dangerous river during monsoon season. This school is not only for education, but is the source of the only nourishing meal these children have in a day.
Successful in building the bridge. Children now have access to school year-round.
Benefiting: Siem Reap Orphanage
We stop here on every trip and purchase a few hundred dollars worth of art from them as well as donate art supplies to the school/orphanage. A Cambodian man and his wife started this small organization in 2003.
They manage to be self sufficient through selling the amazing art that the children create. Some of the kids we have met and supported here are now going to college, have great jobs, and come back to donate their time and skills. Spend some time browsing their art, playing with the kids, and perhaps you will even come home with a very special art piece!
Through sales of their unique art, the orphanage will receive new funds that will allow them to buy new clothes and books.
Benefiting: Harapanjaya Rehabilitation Center
This amazing center is supported by non profits and allows kids with illnesses and injuries to get help they would never otherwise have. Today we will visit with the children whose lives we ultimately helped save through sponsoring the Cleft Palette Surgery Program before the trip. We will also get a tour of this impressive facility seeing some of the children we helped save, and have a chance to donate more to the programs they support if interested. After this moving experience, we will have goodbye lunch to celebrate our once in a lifetime experience together, and hop on the bus for the ride back to the the airport where we will catch our flights home. Farewell to this off the path, hidden jewel of Indonesia. You now have an exciting island checked off your bucket list that not many people you meet in your life will have had the opportunity to have experienced.
Children get to meet the benefactors who have contributed to their well-being and in some cases, saved their lives.

I have had the great pleasure of participating in two tours with Destination Earth. One was on the Big Island and one was on Kauai. Both tours were beyond amazing. The leaders Steve and Jud were experienced, professional, organized and great fun to be with. The accommodations were great and perfectly situated. The chef prepared local cuisine and was amenable to personal preferences. Overall, both experiences were wonderful. I felt safe at all times and appreciated the camaraderie and flexibility of the guides.
I had a great time this past week and want to thank you for all the work you and Jud and Joe did in planning the adventure. Your willingness to change plans and be so accommodating made the trip extra special for me. And of course, the humor. What can I say? I felt like we were all part of a close family. I have told several people about Destination Earth and hope they will contact you. Thanks again, Kathy
“Steve, Jud, and Tom made this trip one of the best outdoors events I have attended. It was amazing, exciting, fun, well planned and oh did I mention fun? Great campfire stories.”
