Siem Reap Muslim Community Development Organization
The Siem Reap Muslim Community Development Organization (SRMCDO) is a small, grass-roots, not-for-profit community organization. Founded in 2006 by a group of concerned community members, with the aim of alleviating the effects of poverty within their small community (of approximately 350 Islamic Cham families). The SRMCDO is based in the community of Stueng Thmey and Tonle Sap floating village, however endeavours to cater to all Islamic Chams in Cambodia.
program aim to provide and improve the skills for the society. Seim Reap Muslim
Community Development Organization (SRMCDO) instigates and implements the
vocational training program for small children and adults in the
purpose of providing them a better knowledge. Adolescents get additional
skills at either computer or English to improve their chances of employment and
improve their English communication skills such as speaking, listening,
reading, and writing. Our goal in conducting this English training is to
provide them good English skills, so they may continue their study in
university or having sufficient English skills to apply for a good job and
improve their quality.
Since the SRMCDO established we have made an
agreement with MUSLIM AID CAMBODIA (MAC) and oversea donors to become development partners in
implementation of a project titled: "Vocational Training to the
educated but unskilled youths: English Language and Computer skills".
After this project has implemented we have seen that the students have gained
the proper skill at either English and computer skill. With fully supported
from Muslim Aid to run English and Computer training skills our students are
able to communicate in English effectively. They also can use both internet and
Microsoft office well. Some students can repair and set up computers. If
compare to last few years ago, it is quite difference; they knew nothing about
English language, computer and internet. They could not even speak English to
foreigners, but now most of them could read, write and speak English very well.
They use English as the way for their communication and for their daily works
program is to provide basic necessities for needy orphans, such as
foods, cloths, education, and healthcare. Our program has started with
few orphans in 2014, nowadays our program become bigger because of the
generous people/families abroad such as Belgium, Singapore, Germany,
Malaysia and some foreigner tourists who come to visit Siem Reap.

2. Student Sponsorship Program: The SRMCDO has sent some students to the Australian Centre of Education
(ACE), to improve their English, so they will be available to transfer
their knowledge to other SRMCDO’s students. In addition we have sent
some students to the college and university in Siem Reap. All this can
happen with the support of our sponsorship program.
As we have many programs, we offers some of the programs to the
volunteers who have the capacity and availability to help us. You can be
in our English teaching or computer training, involved in our women's
development program or contribute in our ECC, fund raising, tours etc.
4. English Conversation Club: As
Siem Reap is a touristic town that attract many tourists to visit, the
use of English is an important extra skills. The SRMCDO established a
free ECC program twice a week for their students and community to
practice English in their daily life.
SRMCDO realized that to build a better community is not easy and
requires a lot of resources. For that reason, the Shadakah centre
program set up to encourages donors to participate in our fund raising.
6. E-Qurban and Aqiqah: This program aims to provide Qurban and Aqiqah to the philanthropists
who would like to do the Qurban and Aqiqah obligations and distribute
the meat to poor community members in Seam Reap.
7. Building School Program: We believe that by providing good education to the community this will
in the long run eradicate poverty and improve their quality of live. For
this reason the SRMCDO want to support the construction of schools to
provide a place to study.
8. Women's Development Program: The SRMCDO is concerned about the disadvantaged women in the family,
and therefore, tries to facilitate improving their skills for living,
such as: handicraft production and sewing skills.
SRMCDO provides support in the income generation of community member,
especially for the Tuk Tuk drivers. As Siem Reap is touristic town, the
SRMCDO offers tours packages and good restaurants for the tourists to
enjoy the local Khmer foods.

Some kind philanthropist from local and oversea donate for this iftar-breaking fasting event with the Muslim floating village (Siem Reap, Tonle Sap Lake). The condition of the floating village housing, look very simple and full of limitation. We did our breaking fasting (Iftar) in the floating market.. Hmmm good food again, the fried hot chicken and rices are always attempted to try.
After breaking fasting, then taking ablutions.. hmm.. the clean water quiet difficult to find.. limited..
