EXO Foundation is an apolitical, secular and not-for-profit organization officially registered under the Ministry of Interior of the Royal Government of Cambodia.
It was established in 2011 by EXO Travel, a leading tour operator in Asia operating in 10 different countries: Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore.
Although EXO Travel remains our major donors and covers all our operational costs, EXO Foundation acts as a separate and independent non profit organization.
The decision to create a foundation slowly matured as EXO Travel, since its creation in 1993, has always been supporting charities in an ad hoc manner. When the 2008 Cyclone Nargis tragically hit Burma, EXO, its travel partners and travel agent clients raised over 200,000 US Dollars which were used for emergency relief, distributing food, rebuilding villages, houses, clinics and schools. Then, EXO Travel realized that many of its partners and clients were looking for trust-worthy organizations they could donate money to, with the assurance that it was being used in a positive and effective manner.
We have an active and engaging sustainability teams within six of our destinations: Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. In each of these destinations, our teams work tirelessly towards achieving our goals of sustainability and to spread the activities of EXO Foundation. A sustainability coordinator is leading the way and acting as a focal point for EXO Foundation.
In our continuous commitment to use tourism to make destinations better places for people to live in, and for travelers to visit, we have become active members of various organizations whose values and cause is aligned with ours. Below are our current affiliations.
We are also members of several organizations that are very active in Asia making a real difference in the communities.
