A future for Cambodia's Youth

Dragonfly is a Swiss non-profit association, which drives youth projects in Cambodia. It is our aim to create meaningful opportunities for young adults living in youth-shelters (including orphanages, safe houses for women and street children) as well as youths from deprived rural backgrounds. 


At our HAVEN Training Restaurant we offer these young adults a quality vocational training in hospitality, support them in their transition from institution to real world and mentor them on their way into the professional world. HAVEN furthermore supplies its trainees with protected housing, food and medical treatment. 


Help us help.

We're getting great feedbacks from around the world for our cookbook. How wonderful it is to be able to share the HAVEN delights with so many people.


08/11/2017 | Our new bakery

The HAVEN Bakery

After two longer delays, we were finally able to open the new HAVEN bakery at the beginning of June. A spacious professional bakery, which we could build and furnish thanks to your help.

Full of enthusiasm Paul got to work right away, testing recipes and training our apprentices and employees. 
Many have discovered their love for baking already.


So far the long awaited HAVEN cookbook (that came out in July 2016) was only available in Cambodia. We are now thrilled to inform you that we can now offer this book full of delicious recipes to our friends in Switzerland and worldwide, and at the same time raise valuable donations for HAVEN.

HAVEN in the SWISS Inflight Magazine

We are extremely proud of this beautiful article about HAVEN and our life here in Cambodia, in the current issue of the SWISS Magazine. 

01/02/2016 | New Beginnings

On New Year's Eve we sent good thoughts to you all around the word and hope you had a happy and healthy start into the New Year. 

We at HAVEN were able to start the New Year fairly relaxed. Because we had our major new beginning in December 2015 already.


07/22/2015 | HAVEN's Future

Since our first visit in 2008, tourism has more than doubled in Cambodia (4,5 million tourists in 2014) and the little temple town Siem Reap is boosting and booming. Unfortunately, however, not all development is positive...


First of all: សួស្ដីឆ្នាំថ្មី! Happy Khmer New Year!

During three days (from April 14th to 16th) everyday life came to an halt, as everyone visited their families, went to the pagodas and danced & celebrated to loud music. The perfect pause for us, to write you an up-date on what else is going on here. 


02/04/2015 | The next HAVEN

The title says it all. And we cannot think of better news for our first blog in 2015.


12/12/2014 | Last but not least

Before we wave goodbye to the year 2014 (which will stay in our memories as a very eventful and exciting year), we want to take the opportunity to share these (great and important) news with you.


The Dragonfly board in Cambodia has come to an important decision regarding the guesthouse project. After informing the board in Switzerland and getting their approval, we want to inform you right here and now.



The Dragonfly newsletter comes out 2-4 times per year.
