"After visiting the Killing Fields, we restored our hope with a volunteer project teaching English to kids. I understood how humans can heal from tragedy: We must all invest in the hopes of a new generation."

"For Amy, this trip was nothing short of life-changing. A million thanks to you and the staff of Peace Works Travel for arranging this wonderful, fantastic, amazing opportunity. Every teenager should do this at least once during high school."
Janice Reinhart, Thacher School Parent, 2011
"The most meaningful experience of the trip for me was visiting the Tuol Sleng prison in Phnom Penh. I founded the Service-for-Soldiers club on campus as soon as I got home. The least we could do is give back to those who prevent these evils from happening ever again."
Kai Dailey, Laguna Blanca School
"Our students asked such great questions that integrated their thinking on policies and personalities. It’s clear they are connecting the various stories of Vietnam together in a more comprehensive picture of the war."
Eric Taylor, Teacher, Francis Parker School

"The Vietnamese veterans shared stories about War, ideas about a bright future for the next generation and how it feels to connect with those they fought. It was fascinating to hear their insights. The students were awestruck."
