To support the low-income families and children in Cambodia, Smiling Gecko pursues an innovative, systemic approach, aimed at sustainable improvement of living conditions within a community. Since the beginning of 2014, Smiling Gecko’s vision has been to build a holistic cluster platform, with projects in agriculture, tourism, crafts and schooling, which provide training opportunities and create sustainable jobs. The economic surplus from the financially-sustainable projects is channeled to finance the school, providing access to quality education to local children. This creates an effective model of a well-functioning rural community, which provides education, decent work and sustainable income to all its members.
