Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Building Partner: Cambodian Children’s Fund
When we started World Housing, we were extremely fortunate to meet Scott Neeson, founder of Cambodian Children's Fund, our official building partner in Cambodia. Scott's vision and hard work have allowed us to build more than 360 homes and to house more than 1800 people in just 2 short years in the Steung Meanchey slum of Phnom Penh. Scott has played an instrumental role in helping our organization build homes for families in need.
Our communities in Cambodia feature more than just homes, they also include playgrounds, gardens, communal spaces, washhouses, and bamboo fencing throughout. We're passionate about creating spaces where families have the resources to thrive. We work closely with Cambodian Children's Fund to make sure every community we build has all the features needed for families to succeed.
“Building the communities was essential. They allowed families to get back together and gave a sense of dignity and hope for the future.” - Scott Neeson, Founder of Cambodian Children's Fund
