Community Development Project

Kontreang commune is located 30km ( 19 miles ) away from Siem Reap. There are  eight villages with nearly 1,900 families and more than 9,500 people living in this commune. In addition to the efforts of the Cambodian government, a number of organizations and local volunteers are united in helping the people in this commune including Homestay Volunteer Teachers Teachers ( HVTO ), a registered non-profit NGO founded on August 28th, 2008.

In every community there are key people who are always appealing for participation from people in the village to do something for the public benefits. For instance, in Kontreang there is a formation of community committee elected by people. They comprise 17 people who actively work to develop the community with their own limited resources.

HVTO has been closely working with this committee to operate all projects since 2008 and HVTO has always been participating with them with their projects in term of road construction, canalization, water wells in public areas, school building, bridges, toilettes, garden in  public school and cottages for homeless people. HVTO is committed to support any projects proposed by this committee as we find that this involvement continues to build good relationship between people and HVTO for our future participatin, cooperation and coordination. Click here to see pictures ofactivities.
