Photo Friday: The Passport School


This Photo Friday spotlights The Passport School in Cambodia, which was built with funds raised from last years Passports with Purpose fundraiser.

“I really can’t look at these photos without getting a bit choked up. And I’m not one to get choked up often.

But think about it. There are kids in this very rural area in Northern Cambodia that now have a place to learn because of a fundraiser that managed to harness the power, interest and heartstrings of a group of travelers.

$10 at a time, we raised $30,000 in 2009. And have influenced the future of a generation of children as a result.”

– Beth Whitman, Co-Founder – Passports with Purpose

We are thrilled to be joining Passports with Purpose this year to help raise $50,000 to build a village in India! You can read more about our contribution to the effort and how you can participate as well. It’s amazing what can happen when a community comes together.
