Join our travelogue bonding tour and experience Cambodia like no other trip can, for you and your child:
Janus Education is proud to partner with Red Dot Explorer on a unique series of travelogue programmes which helps to bond your family as you learn social responsibility.

Imagine yourself helping young underprivileged children build a school kitchen, and have the time of your life writing about it!
Your guide in this writing journey is Catherine Khoo, who will take you along this journey of self-discovery. Journeys is a published printed compilation of thoughts and experiences of you, the participants, as you help the underprivileged and build bonds along the way. Not only that, your family will also get to write your own travel app, and stand a chance to upload it to popular travel sites.
- Learn local culture & experience it!
- Help build schools and facilities for Cambodian children
