Opening of the Bayon Pastry School Coffee Shop in Siem Reap

The NGO Bayon School (Ecole du Bayon) launches its latest project: a free vocational training for underprivileged young women of Cambodia, The Pastry School. It is the occasion to strengthen its partnership with All Dreams Cambodia.


The NGO Bayon School is a registered French NGO providing education and vocational training to underprivileged children and youths in Siem Reap, the Angkor Temple City. To date, we support about 400 children in the completion of their education through 2 main projects:


The Bayon School. It runs our own primary school located in a pagoda close to the Bayon Temple. It welcomes 235 children from Grade 1 to 5 and provide them with the official Khmer education program, English classes and sports and creative activities. After completion of Grade 5, it financially supports 150 youths to attend public High Schools until Grade 12, and for some of them, through university and vocational training.


The Bayon Pastry School. Launched in September 2014, the Pastry School strictly selects every year and trains for free around 20 young women. The training lasts 11 months, including 4 months of internships of Siem Reap’s luxury hotels, such as Sofitel, Amansara, Victoria Angkor, Le Meridien Angkor, etc. The students are taught pastry in a professional environment, with quality equipment. They also attend complementary classes such as English, Accounting, Stock Management, Computer and Personal Development.  We finally provide them with accommodation, food and all training material. At the end of the training, it makes sure all the students find a job with a decent salary in the hospitality industry.


In March 2015, the NGO launched the Bayon Pastry School Coffee Shop, a peaceful place in the heart of Siem Reap, where the customers can enjoy delicious pastries made by our students, but also hot and cold coffees and teas, and fresh drinks. Located in the beautiful garden of our Pastry School, it’s also the occasion for their visitors to learn more about the condition of young women in Cambodia, and the crucial importance of education and vocational training as the most effective mean to come out of poverty.



Ange Moray, Programme Manager and the team from l'Ecole du Bayon: "We would like to reiterate our warm thanks to All Dreams Cambodia: thanks to the visit of some of their clients, a significant financial support was set up, allowing us to provide hundreds of meals in our Primary School."
