FUNDRAISING & DONATIONS
Global Village Housing is a registered charity (NGO) in Cambodia and can receive payments via a bank transfer or online using our DONATE button through our Australian partner Rotary Club of Brighton. For international payments from the United Kingdom and the United States of America we have partner charities who can accept payments and offer tax-deductible receipts. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
While Global Village Housing greatly appreciates all forms of support, we strongly encourage donors to travel to Cambodia and experience first-hand a beautiful culture and people who have survived in spite of a tragic history, while learning how easy it is to help your fellow man. You may be inspired to spread the word so others can share in the feelings of helping some of the poorest and most appreciative people in the world.
To keep costs to a minimum, so we can help more families in need, all travel expenses are the responsibility of the contributing party. We will help with any lodging and booking information as well as tips on what to see and do around town. This is not just a building experience, it's an experience to make a personal connection with the family you are helping.
Our English speaking team in Cambodia are very knowledgeable and will ensure your experience is the best it can be.
Please note we only allow direct sponsors or partners to work in small groups with our families and communities. Global Village Housing does not support orphanages or show-and-tell tourism. Our goal is to keep families together and support them as a whole. We work with the village leaders to ensure all respect and care is given to the families and communities.
As Global Village Housing is a social enterprise and employs locally in Cambodia, we have limited volunteer opportunities, however, we are open to any ideas or assistance you might be able to offer.
