What are Charity is setting out to do?

Green Cultural Travel is committed to giving back in the communities we operate in. We have established Green Cultural Travel Hub Limited, our Foundation which is a not for profit company registered in Singapore.

We pay 2% of every online sale with the exclusion of flights to our Foundation.

Our dream is to support the teaching of permaculture and the establishment of  food forests in schools. We believe that by every school having their own food forest all children can be provided with at least two meals a day. In addition the ability to support yourself by growing your own food should be a basic life skill taught to all students.

What is Permaculture

“Permaculture really starts with an ethic. Earthcare as care of the whole systems of earth and species. So we actually devise model systems. Much of the design is drawn from nature. The end result that we aim for is to produce a system that is ecologically sound and econcomically profitable. It can get as sophisticated or as simple as you like.”

The foundations of our committment was born through our training program which provided work and skills training to at risk people in Phnom Penh allowing them to live a more meaningful and dignified life. This has grown to our involvement with the amazing Coconut School located on Koh Dach (Silk Island) where our Cambodian administration is now based and we are supporting a vocation and training program.

With a Permaculture Design Course for students from a number of Phnom Penh schools scheduled for December 2018 our dream we hope will start to become reality as these students are taken on the start of their journey to become teachers themselves and take their skills back to their schools.
