WHY FOKR EXISTS

 

Hey, we're Friends of Koh Rong. FoKR for short. Yep, we know what it sounds like.

Established in 2013, Friends of Koh Rong exists to help the local communities on Koh Rong adapt to the tourism industry that is changing their way of life forever.

Located two hours off the coast of mainland Cambodia, Koh Rong and its neighbouring islands were for many years considered to be a hidden gem. Now firmly part of the backpacker trail around South-East Asia, Koh Rong is currently under major development, with the Cambodian Government having granted a 99 year lease over much of the island to a conglomerate.

If you've ever been to Koh Rong, you're a lucky duck. You've also probably noticed that the place is changing at an incedibly rapid rate. Friends of Koh Rong seeks to aide our beneficiaries to stand in the best possible position to benefit from the changes that have come to their island.

Our main areas of focus are education and community capacity development. To learn more about our organisation, explore our website, check out our Facebook and Instagram accounts, or get in contact. We’re a friendly bunch, we swear!

 

 

Lots of love, 

The Friends of Koh Rong Family
