Song Saa Foundation

The work of the Song Saa Foundation began when we first found the island in 2006 and created Cambodia’s first ever marine reserve and started to support the remote communities of the Koh Rong Archipelago by providing access to health care and education. From the very beginning, our approach was to be a true triple bottom line business ensuring making money created a net positive impact on the environment and local communities where we work.

HOW WE STARTED

The work of the Song Saa Foundation began when we first found the island in 2006 and created Cambodia’s first ever marine reserve and started to support the remote communities of the Koh Rong Archipelago by providing access to health care and education. From the very beginning, our approach was to be a true triple bottom line business ensuring making money created a net positive impact on the environment and local communities where we work.

WHAT WE DO

In partnership with the Asian Development Bank we have provided access to fresh, clean drinking water to thousands of villagers on Koh Rong and since 2013, International Medical Relief and Song Saa Foundation have brought 40 doctors and $1m USD worth of supplies each year to the Koh Rong Archipelago to bring otherwise inaccessible medical care to the island’s inhabitants. The Foundation also has strong government relationships including an ongoing Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Environment.

The Foundation works hand in hand with the business to amplify our positive impact by leveraging the platform of the company’s assets alongside its independence to raise funding and develop strategic partnerships for both environmental conservation and community support. It is this unique and pioneering model we are replicating in Banteay Srey for The Song Saa Reserve and we hope the Foundation’s track record on Cambodia’s coast gives you a glimpse of the impact we believe we’ll have with The Song Saa Reserve.
