ourDREAM

THIS IS SMILE VILLAGE, A TERRIFIC PROJECT SIMILAR TO OUR OWN VISION. 

 

SMILE VILLAGE WAS BUILT AS A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN FUND RAISING GROUPS AND A CHARITY PARTNER ON THE GROUND IN CAMBODIA.

 

THIS VILLAGE HOUSES 160 FAMILY GROUPS

* Solutions to End Poverty, Pour un Sourire D’Enfant, Brick by Brick and URBNarc

THE CHILDREN'S PLAY AREA WHERE CHILDREN CAN BE SUPERVISED  TO PLAY IN SAFETY.  

 

THIS AREA CAN HOLD FRUIT & NUT TREES FOR SHADE AND MAKE THE ENTIRE PROJECT A SOURCE OF FOOD PRODUCTION.

THE HOUSES ARE BRICK & CEMENT AND COST MUCH MORE TO CONSTRUCT ($7,000) BUT ARE DESIGNED TO BE PERMANENT. KMHER PEOPLE ARE EMPLOYED TO BUILD THE HOUSES - PROVIDING SKILLS & JOBS.

WE CAN BUILD RAISED NO DIG GARDEN BEDS THAT  SUPPORT  WHEELCHAIR USERS AND THE AGED TO GROW FOOD FOR BOTH SALE AND COMMUNAL USE.

 

THE ENTIRE PROJECT WILL FOCUS ON THE SUSTAINABILITY OF THE COOPERATIVE.

THE CENTRAL AREA CAN ALSO HOLD FRUIT & NUT TREES FOR FOOD AND SHADE FROM THE UNRELENTING HEAT. 

THIS COMMUNITY COMPRISES OF FAMILIES WHO WERE ONCE SLUM DWELLERS WHO SCAVENGED FOR A LIVING. IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT WHEN PEOPLE HAD HOUSING SECURITY THEY WOULD HAVE THE CONFIDENCE TOWARDS TAKING THAT GIANT STEP TO FOCUS ON  JOB SECURITY.

A MASSIVE WIN FOR ALL!

TOGETHER WE CAN DO THIS - PROVIDE MORE HOUSING FOR SLUM DWELLING FAMILIES.
