The “Tourism Training Center” (TTC) was established in early 2007 in the town of Stung Treng,
Stung Stung Treng province, in the North-East of Cambodia. The project is under the umbrella of the
Tourism for Help association. TTC functions as a training guesthouse, a training restaurant and a
From 2007 to 2012, 63 trainees (28 females) have graduated. 85% of them found work in the
provinces of Ratanakiri, Kratie and Stung Treng in the tourism and hospitality industry; some of them
started their own business like organizing trekking or continue their studies.
During those school years, the basic knowledge and skill in General English, Ecology, English for
Tourism, Computer, Book Keeping, Housekeeping, Catering (cooking and table service) and
Hospitality were provided. Within the vocational skill training, a number of action strategies were
also integrated such as Environmental Day, Work Empowerment, Creative Class, Cooking Contest
and Rooming Contest to ensure that the skill is acquired and the spiritual health is developed.
Beside this, the training centre also provided monthly allowance ($15.00 US) and covered yearly
medical care ($150.00 US) for each student.
TTC is currently training 18 vulnerable youths through ‘learning by doing.’ Most of the trainees come
from the rural islands of the Mekong, and amongst all 3 students are ethnic minority people (2 Kouy,
1 Prov). Each student is expected to successfully complete a one-year training program, covering
both practical work-related topics (customer relations, hospitality, ecology, catering, cooking,
rooming, gardening and tourism) and more basic educational topics (English, computer literacy and
accounting). They are expected to attend classes for 40 hours per week. TTC also functions itself as
guesthouse and restaurant where students can find first-hand experience in hospitality, customer
relation and catering to improve their capacity. Those practical works they earn with tourist add extra
value to our existing training curriculum.
On October 01st, 2012, “Tonle” was localized into a project of a local NGO namely Cambodian Rural
Development Team (CRDT). From school year 2012 onward, the training centre not only provides
training scholarship, monthly allowance and medical care, but also supports the daily meals and
accommodation for our students.
The present tourism training centre focuses on providing free vocational training for vulnerable youth,
especially those from extremely low income families. In line with the increase in the number of
students since its creation, Tourism for Help is looking for partners or donors to help finance the
TTC operates with 4 full time staff members (1 project coordinator, 2 house keepers and 1 cook), plus
1 part-time night guard and some part-time teachers.
Periodic evaluations of TTC are conducted to evaluate how it:
Helps students become effective learners.
Educates students in environmental knowledge and practices.
Increases an understanding and awareness of tourism through the contacts with the guests.
Improves the well being of vulnerable young people in Stung Treng.
OUTLINE OF PROBLEM
Stung Treng province, which covers an area of 11,092 square kilometers, is a remote and sparsely
populated province in the northeast of Cambodia. It borders Lao to the north, Ratanakiri to the east,
Preah Vihear to the west and Kratie and Kompong Thom to the south. The province is divided into
five districts, with 34 communes and 128 villages. Stung Treng is a unique province quite distinct
from other Cambodian provinces in the Mekong basin. It features three large rivers: the Tonle Kong,
the Tonle San and the mighty Mekong, with its hundreds of small islands scattered along the stretch
of river running within Stung Treng Province.
Stung Treng’s economy is based on fishing and silk weaving. There is also however some agricultural
farming, though this is of low economic importance to the province. It is hoped that the Ministry of
Tourism will be successful in managing its new development plan. The remaining river dolphins
(Irrawaddy) in the Mekong River are at the heart of an ambitious development program to tackle
poverty and to attract tens of thousands of visitors to the province. The Mekong River Discovery Trail
Project will draw visitors to view the endangered fresh water dolphin, which live in 10 deep-water
natural pools along a 190-km stretch of the Mekong River, mostly between the quiet provincial
capitals of Kratie and Stung Treng
Tourism has been growing rapidly in the region since the completion of the road construction project.
Importantly Stung Treng is the first Cambodian town for incoming visitors from Laos.
Goals and Objectives
The “Tourism Training Center” project has three major goals:
Goal #1: to contribute to poverty reduction in Stung Treng Province
Objective #1.1- To help vulnerable youth from Stung Treng to acquire life skills to
improve their living standard through one year’s free vocational training at TTC
Objective #1.2- To help vulnerable youth to find jobs after their graduation
Goal # 2: To promote and strengthen cultural contacts between the students and visitors
Objective #2.1- To improve the promotion of the TTC guesthouse and restaurant to
Objective #2.2- To encourage tourists to share knowledge and experience with the students
Goal # 3: To promote ecological protection
Objectives #3.1- To train students in ecological solutions in:
Waste water management
The main target group is vulnerable youth from Stung Treng Province, in particular those:
Between 17-23 years old
Who left school at grade 9
From extremely poor families (earning less than $1 /day)
From large families (of at least 3 children)
Living in rural areas
The profile of this target group is a key to the project. It is reflected in the project objectives
for Goal# 1, 2 and 3. It is expected that relevant training will contribute to poverty reduction
both within this group as well as within the wider province.
Proposed action points for achieving the goals and objectives of the Project:
Identify additional sources of funding to expand the existing project
Implement strict selection methods for student recruitment
Sign contracts with the students’ families to ensure that their children do not leave the training
before completing the year

TTC will work closely with the Tourism for Help NGO, the Ministry of Tourism, the Governor of
Stung Treng, Cambodia Community Based Eco-tourism Network, students’ parents, the referral
network and the follow up training program. This will be coordinated by CRDT and the TFH
leadership and regularly reviewed through monthly coordination meetings. The principle target
population for this invention will be students. TTC will also work with the student’s family, the
provincial tourism department and the house of the Governor.
Specifically, TTC will work with the Provincial and District Tourism Offices and NGO networks, in
order to build the capacity of trainees. Further in-depth training will be provided to ensure the quality
of students. TTC will partner directly with local NGO partners to promote the TTC program among
their members. In addition to strengthening the existing project, TTC will work with other volunteer
groups to support and enhance operating policies and procedures, and to provide students with
knowledge and general technical skills, such as in areas of health, illegal drugs etc.
TTC will develop a multimedia campaign to promote the existing guesthouse and restaurant to
tourists. In line with best practice, TTC will promote the project via a dedicated website, leaflets,
word of mouth, meetings, conferences and other key events. This campaign will be modeled on a
successful TTC promotion campaign recently undertaken by several guesthouses and hotels in Stung
At the start of the training program, administrative procedures for student enrolment will be finalized,
a baseline assessment of each student will be undertaken and information distributed on the work
program, along with training in the “concept of learning by doing”. Weekly and monthly evaluation of
training will be carried out throughout the year to assess the progress of the program, in particular the
aspect of “learning by doing”. At the end of each year, there will be a final evaluation of the program
to integrate any learning into the program and to ensure that students have the necessary skills to be
employed after graduation.
The appointed TTC program coordinator will undertake the overall management and supervision of
the program. Overall coordination of the follow-up and job employment for graduates will be under
the supervision of the TTC project coordinator.
From 2008 till 2012, the number of guest arrivals to Tonlé guesthouse has increased remarkably. The
fact of this growing is closely related to the best service offered which makes Tonlé become the top
recommended guesthouse and restaurant in Stung Treng town in the Lonely Planet Guidebook. The
table below shows the statistic of Tonlé’s guests from 2008 – 2012.
