COMMUNITY SHELTER AND SCHOOL FACILITIES FOR 160 FAMILIES
Phnom Penh, Cambodia - May 2014 onwards
Done in partnership with Solutions to end Poverty, Pour un Sourire D'Enfant and URBN Arc.
After 20 years of helping homeless children gain access to good educational and job opportunities, Pour un Sourire d’Enfant realised that, in order to achieve long term systemic change, it will have to take care of the children’s families too. In this regard, bB is helping its partners develop a 2.2 hectare site to accommodate 160 homeless families. Family members are being trained in skilled jobs including construction. Children are provided access to childcare and school facilities.
The first phase of this project which involved the construction of 48 homes, child care and community centers was completed and turn over in September 2015.
