World of Difference provides tours, including schoolies tours, where volunteers work in and donate to several schools and villages, together with a range of cultural and tourism activities. The initial focus has been in Cambodia but in 2017 tours will extend into Laos and other Asian countries. Its core mission is to expose participants to the needs of Rotary projects in developing countries.
As a result of the tours, Rotary clubs have initiated their own projects. Sustainability is the key. Local communities and educators identify the needs and our tours help them achieve what is required. Importantly the ongoing nature of the tours allow monitoring, repairs and development of the projects. We don’t walk away when the job is done. Rotary Clubs have partnered with World Of Difference to enable District International and Global Grants that have achieved outcomes of significant proportions for remote communities. A Vocational Training Team of teachers has been highly successful and partnerships with Private Institutions in Cambodia are proving very satisfactory.
