GVH IS A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE BUILDING AND GIFTING HOMES FOR POOR FAMILIES
Every person deserves a place to call home.
Global Village Housing's goal is to provide homes to impoverished people without the means to do so themselves through collaborations with charity organizations, government organizations and private donors and sponsors. Living conditions in Cambodia for the impoverished are some of the worst in the world; unsafe, unsanitary, and unsure. Not only are the housing conditions almost unlivable but people are often evicted from their homes due to government seizures, building projects and simply not being able to afford the land they are squatting on. Global Village Housing was started with the specific purpose of supporting organizations in their efforts to help the poor by providing low cost housing options for the displaced people in tandem with the organizations' other support efforts.
Global Village Housing also provides employment and training. GVH runs 6-12 month courses teaching locals trade skills to enable them to gain employment in the building industry.
Global Village Housing's founder, Australian, Jason Thatcher has worked in Asia for the past 3 years as a self funded volunteer for the Cambodian Children's Fund (CCF). CCF provides care and education for over 735 children, many of whom previously lived on Cambodia's largest garbage dump. This experience, working with many poor families and seeing their needs first hand, really drove Jason to the concept for an inexpensive housing option for these families. Working with the families and CCF "on the ground" provided valuable information as to the practical needs of those in need, building strong, robust houses that are relocatable. When not helping families and working as a project manager for CCF, Jason spends his spare time adventure motorbike riding throughout Cambodia and Vietnam.
