ABOUT

Everyone deserves a place to call home. Global Village Housing is a social enterprise (non-political & non-religious) committed to making that right a reality.

Our mission is to help provide impoverished people with

a safe and secure place to call their own.

Living conditions in the remote villages of Cambodia are some of the worst in the world; unsafe, unsanitary and unsure.

 

Cambodians suffer extreme poverty, earning less than $2 a day,

if they are lucky enough to work.

 

Children can’t always go to school – and the cycle of poverty continues.

 

However, having a safe place to call home can help create a better future.

 

Global Village Housing is a grass-roots, passionate and dedicated organisation working hard to make the right changes in Cambodia.

 

Global Village Housing was founded in 2009 by Jason Thatcher, a man from Melbourne on a mission to make the right changes in Cambodia.

 

Jason had travelled around parts of South East Asia and worked closely with many not-for-profit organisations throughout Cambodia.  He had seen the extreme poverty in the remote villages and knew that having a safe place to call home was the first step to help break the poverty cycle.

  • Global Village Housing managers the entire process for every home to be built and gifted.

  • From our small, dedicated team finding the families most in need; to our local, skilled builders creating homes in our factory.

  • We organise delivery on site and the construction of each home. 

  • Finally, the contract signing and the handover to the family. 

OUR TEAM

Global Village Housing is made up of a small, dedicated and passionate team;

We have a small building team and factory in Phnom Penh that we work with to employ and upskill a local team. 

We also work with other volunteers who assist with project management, IT, communications, media and more.
