Pedals and Packs

Wassmuth Center for Human Rights

Boise, Idaho

Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article #26

Everyone has a right to an education. But having the right, doesn't mean having the transportation to get to school.  Every $50 donation to Pedals and Packs provides a rural school student in Cambodia with a bicycle and a backpack - and one less obstacle on the road to an education.

Pedals and Packs

WHY?

​Thirty years ago, Cambodia emerged from a brutal regime that resulted in complete destruction of schools. Access to and completion of primary school remain a pressing dilemma. Getting to a school where students can complete upper primary grades may mean traveling far distances from home. 

WHO?

Pedals and Packs distributions occur in village schools throughout Cambodia.  Individual students are selected based on academic achievement and/or need.  The program serves as both a reward and incentive to stay in school. 

HOW?

 Each $50 donation to Pedals and Packs will provide one student in Cambodia with a bicycle and backpack – and one less obstacle on the road to an education.

Wassmuth Center for Human Rights

The Center was founded in 1996 for the purpose of constructing a memorial to human rights.  That vision became a reality when the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial opened to the public in August 2002.  The Memorial is a world-class educational park inspired by Anne Frank's faith in humanity. The Center's mission is to promote respect for human dignity and diversity through education and to foster individual responsibility to work for justice and peace.
