We’ve been supporting poverty-stricken families in Andong, a displaced community about an hour from Phnom Penh, since 2009. With little-to-no access to clean water, sanitation, education or medical care, we focus on practical projects that provide long-term, sustainable solutions in education, family support and income generation.
While small and independent, our goals are big and our approach involves local knowledge and engagement. Our model involves highly skilled international volunteers working with a wide range of Khmer employees, from teachers and caregivers to lawyers and construction project managers. We’re proud of the supportive team we’ve built and continue to develop – a team that is dedicated to the needs of the community, and to ensuring that we are accountable for every dollar of money donated.
