per month
Since we are based in a developing economy, even a very small monthly contribution can be a great help for us.   We would love if you can make a larger contribution, but even five dollars a month will help keep the lights on, and show that you support our work.

About Chenla Institute

"The ultimate hidden truth of the world, is that it is something we make and could just as easily make differently."  — David Graeber

We established Chenla Institute as a way of rethinking human civilization from first principles and work towards building better possible futures for humanity.

Our flagship project is called Yellow Brick Road, and we have just launched a journal called Yellow Brick Letters were we will outline our findings and projects which aim to materially improve people's lives today, while working towards a sustainable future for everyone.  We welcome everyone to join us to work together towards better possible futures.

Chenla Institute is owned and operated by James Collins <[email protected]> and Ruben Seja <[email protected]>, with offices in Phnom Penh.   For more information visit our website at: .or, tel: +855 (0)10628234.
1 of 100 patrons
When we reach 100 patrons we will hire 2 additional staff who will take over community development projects that include helping to provide affordable debt-free housing and helping small holding farmers in the Lower Mekong Sub-region to make a sustainable living.
