Cambodian women and men work together for an autonomous and secure future. We support them.
We are a young, results-driven Swiss NGO of high integrity. Thanks to our project experience and passionate commitment, we ensure, in close cooperation with local partners, that donations and volunteer work support the people in Cambodia effectively and sustainably.
Who we are
Kamboo Project was established in September 2014 as a Swiss charitable organization under the name «United Asia Charity». In the run up to this, initiator Enzo Sportelli had experienced how much can be achieved for the people in Cambodia with only a few resources if you get engaged and deliver with passion. In January 2017 the Board has been upgraded by adding experienced members to strengthen the organization. Since September 2018 we are Kamboo Project.
Together, we work passionately for the rural Cambodian population in order to improve their living conditions for the long term. Since 2014, we have been implementing projects in the provinces of Siem Reap and Banteay Meanchey, Cambodia. In addition to this clear geographical focus, we limit our activities to three core areas where we can have the most impact: drinking water and sanitation, sustainable construction and renovation, and education. Kamboo Project follows the guideline "help for self-help" - our projects enable the people to help themselves and improve their living conditions in the medium to long term.

Where we operate
For effective assistance that yields as many synergies and as much support as possible, we focus on the Cambodian provinces of Siem Reap and Banteay Meanchey. Banteay Meanchey, less known, has a total of about 680'000 inhabitants. In the current phase, Kamboo Project mainly supports the community of Sang Kat Nimitt with a population of 19'388 people. The district is home to 15 villages where our projects are used. In the province of Siem Reap, appr. 15 miles outside the well-known provincial capital, we help build up community life in the two villages of Kouksrok and Anchanh.
