SPECIAL EVENT - SEPTEMBER 3RD 2018! In Phnom Penh, Cambodia in 2003 a retired math teacher from the US started a school for impoverished kids living in a squatter area. The school's mission is to teach the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic so the students may someday find meaningful employment. Currently there are over 140 kids enrolled in grades Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. In Cambodia, students must pay a daily fee to attend public (government) school. But this school is totally free to the students and their families.
Proceeds from the evening will be donated to www.kidsneededucation.org in support of AOGAAH Foundation.
Join local expats, dignitaries, visitors, and the Village 15 school staff onboard for a very special evening in support of providing Cambodia's children an opportunity for a bright future.
The K'mai word 'Aogaah' (ow caw) means "opportunity." Aogaah Foundation® has neither religious affiliation nor religious or political orientation. They provide an equal opportunity for boys and girls. This school is for the kids. Please help give these little kids a chance where in reality they are so often overlooked. This is a one night only special event and we welcome you aboard in supporting the local kids of Cambodia!
DEPARTURE (strict): 6:00pm
Please ensure you plan to arrive well before 6pm as we must depart at the scheduled time.
Dinner and Cruise services provided by Cambo Cruise. Dinner is served after sunset. An all-you-can-eat buffet made from fresh, local, organic food that is stored, prepped, and cooked fresh daily on the boat in a stainless steel kitchen, never prepared on land hours before, and definitely not on a rusty charcoal grill. No fish from the river is served, ever. All original sauces are made onboard. Salad, spring rolls, organic brown rice, curry, fruit, fresh bread, sandwiches, and a variety barbecue with Texas-style barbecue and Asian teriyaki sauce is served. There are low-carb, vegetarian, vegan, and halal options available.
The bar has spirits from around the world. Most any traditional cocktail can be made, but be sure and try one of many original signature cocktails, satisfaction guaranteed. Local and imported beers, as well as red and white wines by the glass or bottle. Fresh, locally grown coffee beans are ground just before brewing to ensure fantastic espresso, and coffee.
After dinner, cruise down the Mekong River before turning up the Tonle Sap to take in the Phnom Penh riverfront skyline after dark. This perspective is stunning, only to be seen like this by boat. After passing under the Japanese Friendship Bridge, return to port. The bar will stay open, and you are free to stay and enjoy the river views.
The cruise boat is a newly constructed vessel designed solely with lunch/dinner cruising in mind. With 365 degree views from the top, it has 140 seats with a rustic, wooden, Cambodian design with modern touches. It is equipped with three toilets, men’s, women's, and staff's, running water from fresh water tanks, and a water filtration system for clean, purified drinking water. Hygiene, safety, and guest satisfaction are the priorities. A large commercial kitchen with floor-to-ceiling stainless steel walls and appliances, and rubber flooring is designed to prepare food for up to 120 guests in short order. The boat is licensed, inspected, and has staff that is well-trained in safety and first-aid procedures, with flotation devices, safety equipment, and fire extinguishers onboard. No other boat in Phnom Penh can offer you all of these things.
