How you support our school by booking our bike tours
Cambodia is becoming an increasingly important destination for tourists. In order to benefit from this, and to earn an income, learning English is essential for many Cambodians. In public schools, however, the language is not taught on a regular basis. Our non-governmental organisation, Khmer for Khmer Organisation,
has made it its mission to close this gap in education. Founded in 2009 by the Cambodian, Moeun Phary and the German, Markus Tigges, the organisation aims to provide a free education for children and adults from the rural area of Chreav Commune, Siem Reap. Since 10 years the KKO school represents a meeting point for children and young adults from the countryside to exchange knowledge and receive sustainable education. Through the free English classes and vocational training our school provides, they are given the chance to take charge of their own life, build a career and follow their dreams. While constantly growing, we welcome 300 young students to our free English school every day. We rely on our trained, local teachers who are passionate about their profession. In addition, we train up to 8 young women and men as tailors in a one-year sewing program.
In order to finance our educational projects in long term and to be more independent from donations, we founded OFF TRACK Tours in 2011. The total profit of our bicycle, motorbike and trekking tours goes directly to our educational projects. That’s how travellers from all over the world help us to realise our goals and become a part of our project. Support us and travel smarter.
