Donating Our Profits Since 2013

Siem Reap's Not-for-profit Café and Restaurant
Georgina and Ian, first met in January 2013 whilst volunteering at a school in Siem Reap. They shared a common desire – to build a sustainable business that provides charities with much needed funding & support. They chose to establish a social enterprise cafe/restaurant in the heart of Siem Reap.

New Leaf opened its doors in July 2013 and within 3 months made its first cash donation. Since then New Leaf has donated over $57,000 and 2,000 books.

New Leaf’s vision is to support education in Siem Reap province, through profits generated by being a high quality dining experience that offers a “taste of Cambodia”.

As a social enterprise, New Leaf has implemented numerous environmentally friendly initiatives and adopted fair employment practices; including a living wage, health insurance, fully paid social security, profit share, regular training and career development opportunities. Aside from periods of lockdown, New Leaf remained open throughout the pandemic and paid its staff in full.

In keeping with New Leaf’s environmental and social aims, New Leaf sources locally, where possible, and offers an extensive range of vegetarian and vegan options.
