On March 1, 2011 Morgan Parker will embark on his Wheel2Wheel enduro adventure. A 20,000 km, 100 day, 10 country journey, Wheel2Wheel aims is to raise money and awareness for charitable organisations across Asia and Australia. In mid-March, after tackling the illegal moon bear issue of Vietnam in support of Animals Asia, the Wheel2Wheel riders will arrive in Laos where they will highlight the educational needs of marginalized children and youth in support of Child’s Dream.
Wheel2Wheel is 100% self funded. All Donations through “Live the Dream” options are channeled back to the 10 Charities. The donations allocated toChild’s Dream will help build a school in Laos.
The journey through Laos encompasses a visit to the haunting Vieng Xai caves, the mysterious Plain of Jars, the remote Bolevan Plateau and the charming Luang Prabang and Vientiane.
The beautiful Landscape of Laos cannot disguise the troubled history of the country from domination by Thailand, French colonialism, devastation from the Vietnam War and isolation due to communist rule. Laos is one of the least developed countries in the world, as listed by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). Education is poorly funded and over 30% of the population is illiterate.
Child’s Dream‘s main goal is to empower underprivileged children in the Mekong Sub-Region by providing them with better education infrastructure. In 2010 alone,Child’s Dream helped renovate 6 schools in Laos so that each facility is able to accomodate more students in the community.

Local villagers built this school with local materials and some zinc for the roof. Due to poor construction materials and the villagers’ lack of expertise, the building often required repairs. The team at Child’s dream helped the community build a new school, furnished the classrooms with better quality desks and chairs, and installed four toilets and a water system to improve the students’ health.
