Mr. Nou Tat, Chairman/Founder of ACO
After 21 year-experienced work as a tour-guide in Siem Reap, and then he decided to contribute his own property and donate his guiding-fee and donations from his generous donors to construct A Free English Language School that accommodate over 160 identified impoverished and vulnerable children who come from the different local villages in his community in Siem Reap. He found the urgent need from poor, destitute and orphaned children in his community who had no equal chance to attend the school and care from their family; those children have lack of education, welfare and other needs. He has a vital goal to support a lot of children in his community to have safe home, welfare, education, skills and also help local community outreach. He really needs more generous and dedicated people to participate in his projects. Please make our world a better place with peaceful co-existence. All initial costs for the establishment and operation of the first Angkor Charity Organization facility were covered by Mr. Nou Tat, who now acts as the organization’s full time Chairman. He really enjoys his work so much and he lives for it!
