Khmer for Khmer Organization

About KKO

Khmer for Khmer Organization is ...

a charitable Non-Government-Organization (NGO) in Siem Reap, Cambodia. We provide free English classes to over 270 students and vocational training as tailors and motorbike mechanics.

The Idea

KKO was founded in 2009 by Director, Moeun Phary and President, Markus Tigges.  Phary Moeun is running a very successful private Language and IT skills school and a Kindergarten. Over the years she met many students who were eager to learn but whose families did not have the money to pay the school fees. The basic idea to provide free education and a variety of vocational training was born.

Since 2009 we have made a lot of progress and have expanded our buildings, structures and projects:

KKO supports more than 250 students daily. All of our English and computer lessons as well as the two areas of vocational training are given for free. So of course we are always happy for somebody to give KKO and the students a leg up. We rely on donations to our project to be able to continue our work. The best way to support KKO, is to sponsor an individual student.
