Opportunities of Development thru Art (ODA)
APT, in conjunction with ODA and The Rotary Club of Atherton, Queensland, have built a school in an impoverished area near Siem Reap, Cambodia. APT supports this venture through direct and indirect funding, and will take guests to ODA when possible. The main focus is to care and guide the children who live there and provide free English education which will lead to wider employment opportunities for students. Offering both practical and financial support, we’re delighted to be making a difference to a region that provides our guests so much enjoyment.
For every river cruise APT conducts to Cambodia, we contribute towards ODA. This helps to cover the cost of building, servicing and staffing the school including the teacher’s salary and costs. This is our contribution to educating the children in English which is the best way for them to reach above the subsistence farming of their parents, and so break the poverty cycle.
