Friends the Restaurant is a training restaurant run by former street youth and their teachers.
To help Mith Samlanh's hospitality students gain practical skills and prepare them for employment, we operate so called training restaurants. In Phnom Penh, Romdeng, (#74, Street 174) has been designed to promote Cambodian culture and food, while at Friends the Restaurant (#215, Street 13) students are trained in Asian and Western cooking.
The focus of this training is building self-esteem, self-respect, very high standards of hygiene and of course, hospitality skills. When the students have finished their training, we help them to find jobs. We are grateful to all the businesses that offer employment opportunities to our students. There is nothing greater than to see them working independently either in their own business or in one of the many eateries around town. If you would like to support us (by hiring our graduates, giving donations, ideas, suggestions, or comments) please ask our restaurant staff or contact us via email.
All profits from our restaurants are reinvested into Mith Samlanh's projects for former street children and youth.
