Introducing myself and my journal: Cambodia, Education, Volunteers, and Chaos
I moved to Cambodia in 2005 after organizing a fundraising bike-ride through Cambodia. Our organization, PEPY, funds educational development programs in rural Cambodia and is funded through volunteer and adventure tours. I am skeptical of both the development and volunteer tourism industries, trying to go "better" in areas where I see a lot of harm being done, still making mistakes, and trying to decide if "better" is good enough.
