About The Adventure
15 days that will change lives.... yours and so many more!
Women Embrace Adventure has partnered with the charitable organisation Restore One, to bring you this women’s only, fully guided Cultural and Volunteer trip of a lifetime to Cambodia.
'This trip would have to be one of the most rewarding things that you will ever do in your life. It will awaken your senses and hurt your heart. It will make you wonder why or how humans can be so cruel to each other. But at the same time, you will meet people that have nothing to give but will open their hearts to you and greet you with a smile. You will see some of the world's most amazing wonders in this country. You will see the pain and suffering that you would never even imagine. There will be times when you think your heart just can't take anymore. Then one of the locals will smile at you, and it all goes away. But you will return a better person. And if you're really lucky, like me, you'll make some incredible new friendships along the way.' Tricia 2019
Our goal is to raise funds to help Restore One Charity pave an outdoor classroom, build village toilets and pay for teacher wages at their School in Kampong Thom Province. We're dedicated to bringing a team of women together to make this happen!
Whether travelling with a friend, a group or on your own, we give you the opportunity to see the real Cambodia in a supported, caring environment. You'll get to make a big difference and see where your fundraising dollars are going when volunteering on different projects within the village.
Fundraising: Each participant pledged to raise $1200 AUD as part of the trip. Don’t fret about fundraising; we’re here to help. Most of our previous three teams were relieved at how easy it was to raise the funds by sharing on social media and getting family, friends and co-workers excited about the trip. All donations over $2 are tax deductible, and your donator will receive a tax receipt automatically via email. Talk to Kat and Sharon if you have any questions; we have lots of suggestions for fundraising.
All funds go directly to our charitable partner, Restore One, through their Raisley Web-based platform.

'I joined this trip to Cambodia not fully understanding the importance of what I was about to embark on or the emotional impact it would have on me. I came back with so much love and respect for the woman I travelled with and the tenacity and drive of the Cambodian people I met and sit with and talked to and listened to and a much better understanding of why I was drawn to be there. Each and every day for us was different from history to culture to traditions to challenges to giving a helping hand to atrocities and cruelty to love to spirituality to magic moments to dreams to self-development to working as a team of women a village of women to making a positive impact to giving back and most of all to helping to change a negative into a positive little by little for the people of Cambodia.'

We really look forward to having you join us on this Cambodian Cultural and Volunteer Adventure! xSharon and Kat
