Mike Pawley Sports is the principal financial supporter of the Happy Days Cambodian Village School Inc charity, an Australian non-profit organisation proudly supporting a rural village community in one of the poorest regions in Cambodia.

Our charity aims to create awareness of such poverty by raising funds for impoverished school children striving for an education in very difficult circumstances. Part of every purchase at Mike Pawley Sports goes towards the education of our 1,000 sponsored rural village children who live in Siem Reap, Cambodia. 

If you would like to join us on a unique life enhancing experience by travelling to Cambodia, please contact the Charity via email.
