Meet the Dak Dam Community

Member since: April 2014

We are Bunong people living in Dak Dam village. After great help from different organizations, we are now able to receive you and make you a part of our community! You will join us in our daily activities and we will show you how we live. We would like to provide you with an authentic experience of local people in Cambodia. One of our actual concerns is that deforestation is undermining our livelihoods as forest is important for us as you will discover. We have three community forestry areas in Dak dam which are managed by ourselves. Your visit to our community will also contribute to protecting those forest areas allowing us to regularly patrol and prevent illegal activities. Indeed, 30 % of the cost of each tour is going directly to a community box which is used by villagers for community forest preservation.Our pictures are made by Lisa Arensen.
