In 2016, one of our team members traveled through Cambodia and met a man with a passion for giving children a fair chance. In order to accomplish this mission he aimed to build a school next to his house and hire a teacher to provide English lessons for the children of his village . Yet, without any steady income, his project was completely dependent on donations. We saw the opportunity to help Mr. Thy achieve his goal, by making use of the many free rooms he had next to his house as accommodation for travelers. With this idea, a bunch of enthusiastic students within the student initiative Enactus got together and designed the idea for the very first Socialbnb homestay: Mr. Thy’s school in Pang Na in Cambodia. In just three months we were able to welcome just about 20 travelers in Pang Na. With this additional money, Mr. Thy was not only able to pay an English teacher for the class, but he could also invest in computers and books to improve the learning experience as such. Soon, we realized that Mr. Thy might not be the only one in such a situation. After some research, we discovered that over 60 percent of small local non-governmental organizations struggle with the same problem: highly dependent on donations and simply not enough money to realize their projects that help to solve the future challenges of our world.
