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 helps kids with illnesses and injuries to get assistance they would never been able to find otherwise. We helped save the lives of children at this clinic through sponsoring the Cleft Palette Surgery Program. Travelers are welcomed with a tour of this impressive facility, coming face to face with some of the children we helped save, and have a chance to donate more to the programs they support if interested.
Children get to meet the benefactors who have contributed to their well-being and in some cases, saved their lives.
Benefiting: Cambodian Village Children
Destination Earth is seeking nurses to help design a first aid education program in a small under-resourced village in Cambodia!
Help us help schoolteachers learn how to respond to children’s basic health issues - from common diseases to fractured limbs to domestic abuse.

"Jud and Steve did a fabulous job on my recent tour with them to Myanmar and Sumatra. They really listen carefully to our desires and are open to making any adjustments in their planned itinerary to give everybody everything they want to experience. For example, the main reason I signed up for the trip was to photograph the ancient temples in Bagan. Well, following a less than stellar sunset shoot at the temples on our last night due to weather, even though we were flying out about 10 AM the next morning, they scrambled and put together a sunrise shoot that turned out to be mind blowing incredible! I’m so thankful for that 🙏🏻 and it remains as one of my top two memories of the trip. All along the way we stayed very comfortably in great hotels and ate wonderful local food. So, thanks guys, we’ll definitely do it again!"
"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"
"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."
