SPONSORS & SUPPORTERS

Without the generous help from our sponsors and supporters, from a range of individual and corporate donors, we wouldn’t be able to progress in our milestone of tasks towards a sustainable social initiative achievement that will make a long-lasting difference to the ordinary people in Cambodia.

We would like to extend a special thanks to our major supporters below who are all part of the journey of changing the life of the disadvantaged people in Cambodia.

Thank you from the bottom of our heart for your support and constant encouragement!

Songthoul Fernandez, is the owner and the engine of KennaryTours and Founder-Chair of Samaki Khmer. A simple but effective concept of solidarity and help via tourism.
Kennary Tours is Cambodia’s specialist travel agency since 1999.
Renowned for its proximity to its customers, its structure has welcome a growing number of travellers curious to discover the hidden faces of Cambodia. Based on our experience, we have chosen “the immaterial” as a value based on all that cannot be quantified: friendship, emotion, solidarity.
Our tours promote encounters between visitors and Cambodians daily, meetings often impossible outside a perfect knowledge of Cambodia. This is one of our tourist attractions. We do the extra miles… Beyond the classic visit of the Angkor site, our goal is to allow tourists to appreciate the richness of human contact with the rural population. With the aim of bringing rural tourists into the village with dignity, in a relationship of equality with the villagers, Kennary Tours has created the opportunity to participate in a micro project: the donation of a wooden cottage. These countryside cottages are the result of donations coming from everywhere, but especially of visitors coming via KENNARY to meet these families. With the opportunity to leave a deep impression of their passage: a plaque is affixed to each house with the names of donors who came to discover the reality of Cambodia.
