Cambodia is known for its fascinating history, rich culture, and picturesque countryside. In October 2023, you can discover all this (and more) as you pedal your way across the country all while raising funds for vulnerable children in Cambodia.  

The journey will take you from the bustling city to ancient ruins that appear to have been swallowed up by nature.

Cycle across Cambodia with UNICEF 

UNICEF Australia is creating a positive impact on the lives of children in Cambodia. Thanks to people like you, we have delivered nutrition programs across 97 different communities, provided treatment for 5,700 severely malnourished children and reached more than 22,700 parents through our education program.  

UNICEF works day in and day out, in some of the world’s toughest places, to help and improve the health, nutrition and education of children like Veasna, 13, a student in Siem Reap province.

Veasna is one of 898 students from 18 schools in Siem Reap who participated in educational workshops delivered by six young project leaders from Generation Future.  

UNICEF's Generation Future is a call out to young Cambodians across the country to transform their potential into action and achievement. One leader, Raksa, 17, conducts her workshop on health and nutrition.  

"Before joining the programme, I wouldn’t have felt brave enough to talk to students like that. However, I have built my confidence and now feel that I can teach others about what I’m passionate about."

Raksa is planting her way to healthy diet and improved nutrition for Cambodian households. Raksa hopes her project empowers households to make food insecurity in Cambodia a problem of the past.

"It was such an inspirational time and I recommend the experience to anyone looking for how they can give back and challenge themselves in 2023. You won’t regret it!"
