A future for Cambodia's Youth

Dragonfly is a Swiss non-profit association, which drives youth projects in Cambodia. It is our aim to create meaningful opportunities for young adults living in youth-shelters (including orphanages, safe houses for women and street children) as well as youths from deprived rural backgrounds. 


The Dragonfly projects are set to create meaningful opportunities for these young adults and provide them with a perspective in life.


At our HAVEN Training Restaurant we offer these young adults a quality vocational training in hospitality, support them in their transition from institution to real world and mentor them on their way into the professional world. HAVEN furthermore supplies its trainees with protected housing, food and medical treatment. 


With tourism booming the town center has expanded considerably and the lease prices are skyrocketing. This proved also to be the case for HAVEN on Sok San Road. The rent will go up by 400%. As a result, we had to admit to ourselves that we would not be able to finance the program anymore. 


Now we need your help. Pleaes read more here.



07/22/2015 | HAVEN's Future

Since our first visit in 2008, tourism has more than doubled in Cambodia (4,5 million tourists in 2014) and the little temple town Siem Reap is boosting and booming. Unfortunately, however, not all development is positive...


First of all: សួស្ដីឆ្នាំថ្មី! Happy Khmer New Year!

During three days (from April 14th to 16th) everyday life came to an halt, as everyone visited their families, went to the pagodas and danced & celebrated to loud music. The perfect pause for us, to write you an up-date on what else is going on here. 


02/04/2015 | The next HAVEN

The title says it all. And we cannot think of better news for our first blog in 2015.


12/12/2014 | Last but not least

Before we wave goodbye to the year 2014 (which will stay in our memories as a very eventful and exciting year), we want to take the opportunity to share these (great and important) news with you.


The Dragonfly board in Cambodia has come to an important decision regarding the guesthouse project. After informing the board in Switzerland and getting their approval, we want to inform you right here and now.



The Dragonfly newsletter comes out 2-4 times per year.
