Welcome to GVH
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.

A destination is NOT just a place, it is a new way of seeing and learning new things! The Cardamoms are considered to represent Southeast Asia's greatest natural resources in terms of virgin forest and wildlife, legend has it, that once you partake in Cardamom mountains' treasures, you will never want to leave. Pailin, Cambodia, a city of unspoiled! Visit to Pailin is also to have a glimpse of the reborn of once war-torn area. Starting from 08 June to 30 November 2013, Memoria Palace & Resort together with our guests are going to plant 1000 native tress Afzelia xylocarpa or Pahudia cochinchinensis in Latin on our resort’s compound, returning 13 hectares of land to native forests and thereby helping to diminish the effects of carbon dioxide and to create a pristine environment and be a model of green tourism in Cambodia. The trees will be provided free of charge to our guests. Every three months we will take photos of the trees our guests’ plants and update them by email, showing the growth of the trees. Memoria Palace & Resort is a beautiful boutique eco-resort offering simple, yet stylish accommodations, memorable experiences and personal rejuvenation made for nature lovers.

Would we be able to suggest a village for these homes and launch a fundraising drive? We've been working with a church in Kompongsom helping school several children whose families are in desperate need of housing in a nearby village, Tomnobrolok Village.
