ConCERT – "Connecting Communities, Environment & Responsible Tourism" - is a not-for-profit social enterprise based in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Our vision is a Cambodia free of poverty; our mission is to maximise the benefits from tourism and travel of all kinds for the most vulnerable people in Cambodia.

Many visitors to Cambodia witness the harsh realities of poverty at first hand.  They then want to help, but are unsure how:

  • How should you respond to street children begging for food or money?
  • What are the issues surrounding many orphanages in Cambodia, and are there better alternative solutions for children in desperate need?
  • What makes a successful volunteer placement, and what can go wrong if these requirements are not in place?
  • How can you do something positive if you only have a day or two to spare?
  These are just a few of the issues ConCERT staff deal with every day.  Call in and see us at our information centres in Sister Srey Café, New Leaf Book Café, or, (from early 2014), Haven training restaurant, when you’re in town, or take a look through our website to find out how you can best offer your support.
