Will you rise to the Challenge?

CUFA is extending a unique opportunity to teachers and education professionals to join our Cycle Cambodia adventure holiday challenge this April 17-22, and to help raise funds and awareness in support of our poverty combating work across the Asia-Pacific region.

Not a teacher? No worries! You can register for our June open challenge HERE.

With an emphasis on participating in the delivery of CUFA’s Children’s Financial Literacy program in Cambodia’s classrooms, this physical adventure challenge is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for education professionals to become involved with CUFA’s international development work first-hand, as well as experience the amazing culture, people, food and scenery of Cambodia.

The April tour coincides with school holidays and participants complete a 6-day cross-country cycle challenge in Siem Reap, the home of the historic Angkor Wat, as well as volunteering in CUFA’s project work in primary schools in provinces across Cambodia. It is the opportunity to witness education and schooling in a vibrant and emerging economy.

‘At CUFA, we operate on the foundation of our core values of passion, integrity, collaboration and innovation – values I believe to have a natural synergy with the education community. These shared values are applied directly in our Children’s Financial Literacy program, as well as in our other poverty-combating initiatives across the Asia-Pacific. In 2017, we hope to welcome as many members of the education community as possible to join us in our mission to alleviate poverty in a lasting and meaningful way.’ – Rebecca MacFarling, Deputy CEO, CUFA

 ‘I experienced the most exciting and thought provoking trip to Cambodia. I can’t praise the CUFA Cambodia staff enough. Their commitment to the Cambodian children with the literacy program and support for the Village Entrepreneurs is truly commendable. The support provided to all of us on our challenge was outstanding and I can not praise the CUFA staff enough.’ – Ally Bruhn, 2015 CUFA Challenger
