Cambodia Non-Profit Partners

 

New Hope

This grass roots, rapidly growing Non-Government Organisation (NGO), focuses on ‘free education for all’ as the founder’s recognition of the vital role education plays in helping break the cycle of poverty. New Hope’s activities and programs address the daily issues facing families in crisis situations and, at the same time, find ways to work toward a better future. We often eat an amazing meal here prepared by those they help.

Ponheary Ly Foundation

The Ponheary Ly Foundation a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the USA. Their goal is to locate and serve the many children in Cambodia who live in the poorest rural villages and do not have access to equitable educational opportunities. We have built bridges, rebuilt kitchens, Done bike repair clinics and other important projects in this village. It also happens to be nestled among hidden temples that rival many at Angkor Wat itself.

ConCERT

This registered Cambodian NGO was created by a British man and his Cambodian wife. The program connects volunteers with specific skills, with a network of vetted non profits that are need of the help.  We have donated school supplies and computers and our guests have even spent a few extra days volunteering with them.

ODA (Orphans & Disabled Arts Association)

This is another small grass roots non profit we support. We love that they are mostly self sufficient using art as a tool to fund their non profit while giving children at this orphanage the opportunity to learn a valuable skill that will raise them above poverty. We stop here When visiting Angkor Wat as they are close by, and many of our guests load up on beautiful paintings to share with their loved ones, supporting this amazing organization.

Friends

Friends-International was born on the streets of Phnom Penh in August 1994. We initially provided services to the street kids found in the Cambodian capital in the aftermath of years of genocide and conflict in the country. The original Friends project, Mith Samlanh (which means ‘Friends’ in Khmer – all programs use a local language version of ‘Friends’ in their name) became a local NGO in 1999, and they then went on to expand both their programs and partnerships in the following years, developing social business and child protection elements to ensure comprehensive and creative solutions and services for all the marginalized youth and communities they now work with. The 17 children whose lives they changed in 1994 have grown to 100,000 in the ensuing decades, thanks to their innovative partnership model of ‘Together, building futures’.  We eat at their amazing restaurants and support their cause on just about every trip to Cambodia.

Jars of Clay

We are a family oriented Café which operates as a social enterprise providing sustainable employment for many disadvantaged and at-risk young Cambodian women. Our first café was started by a missionary from UK in 1998 – emerging from these very humble beginnings with only five full time Cambodian staff we have grown to now employ over 20 Cambodian staff within two Cafes! Our Cafes are located in the popular Toul Tom Poung (near Russian Market) and Phnom Penh Thmey areas of Phnom Penh. This is a favorite stop when our tours take us to Phnom Penh.

Romdeng(TREE)

All profits from TREE restaurants are invested in the students who train there and the social programs which support them on their journey to becoming a skilled, productive and happy young person with a more secure future. One more great eatery that we support. With 3 meals a day, there are many opportunities to both feed ourselves and the engine that runs this powerful charity.

Nyemo

NYEMO aims to provide vulnerable women with the necessary means to regain their dignity and participate actively in the development of their country. Every year, around 800 women who are abused, trafficked, sick, affected by HIV/AIDS or abandoned by their families or husbands and close to 700 helpless and orphaned children receive support from us. We are a Cambodian non-government organization established in 1998, jointly working with government ministries and local organizations.

Salabai

The French NGO Agir pour le Cambodge (APLC), created in 1985, launched the Sala Baï program in 2002 to fight poverty and human trafficking in Cambodia through social and professional training of young underprivileged Cambodians. One of our favorite restaurants and a testiment to how a non profit can both do good while offering a fantastic service. We deeply believe the best way to support those in need is to create a sustainable business model around it.

Cambodia Landmine Museum

We strive to educate our visitors of the importance of clearing landmines in Cambodia. With potentially 5,000,000 still in the ground, landmines have immensely impacted the history and culture of this amazing society.
