Together we did it! Solar power will be installed at Run Ta Ek

XplorMor International is SUPER EXCITED to announce that solar power will be installed at Run Ta Ek Eco-Village in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Through our partner in Cambodia a new solar power company is on board. And, they offered to do the work at a fraction of the cost! Between campaigns on Facebook and GroupRev, and donations received through Paypal and the website, XMI met its funding goal. A deposit was forwarded to the solar company to begin work. Follow the progress.

Run Ta-Ek Eco Village

Run Ta-Ek is a partnership between the APSARA National Authority (Cambodia’s Authority for the Protection of the Site and Management of the Region of Angkor) and the Khmer people living around and inside Cambodia’s Angkor Archaeological Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The focus is on eco-tourism, creating jobs, education and a sustainable future for villagers who move out of Angkor to Run Ta-Ek.

Since its founding, over 100 families were given homes and lands by the APSARA Authority. These families have children in need of education. A school was built within the 1,000 hectare community grounds to meet this important need. However, it lacks certain necessities such as electrical power. This campaign aims to raise the funding required for installation of solar power panels, lighting, and fans. The goal is to make the school sustainable, comfortable and productive for the children’s education development. And, to pave the way for future advancements like computers.

    Update 6/7/2017: Success! The first project & fundraiser from XplorMor International Non-Profit was realized: solar power, along with lights, fans and electrical outlets for computers, were installed in the children’s school at Run TA-Ek Eco Village, located near Siem Reap, Cambodia. The eco-village is one of the first all solar homestay projects in Cambodia. The community was created to alleviate population pressures at Angkor Archaeological Park, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. THANK YOU!
