About the local hosting organizationTFC stands for Trapang Sangke Fishing Community, was established in early 2009 aiming to unite both Khmer and Khmer Muslim together for sea-life preservation. CYA has been actively supporting the community since 2012 to provide voluntary assistance in helping to plant the mangroves, seedling, and maintaining. Due to the active participation with local & international people, the illegal migration of the local families has been degreasing, number of fishermen from the village have been increasing and the children are back to their homes for school. Because the deforestation & illegal fishery are still happening, it has been the needs for the volunteers to support as strengths, and promoting the eco-village which is run to support the sustainable development program for this dual community. TFC welcomes individuals who are passionate about environmental and physical contribution. As an eco-village, you are not only working as active promoters for environmental and sea-life preservation, but enjoying the atmosphere of the natural environment.
