It is estimated that at least 10 million Cambodians still lack access to decent housing, affecting members of the family’s safety, health, and access to opportunities like education. And often, the most vulnerable have to deal with corruption and suffer forced evictions due to a lack of secure land tenure.
Working under the Grace Project, the Cambodia Big Build aims to support to most specific vulnerable such as people living with HIV/AIDs, people living with disability, homeless and squatter populations who living in the informal settlements, youth/female who plays as head of household, scavengers (garbage collector), people who lost their home and livelihood as a result of disasters, elderly people over 60 years of age, and orphans, unaccompanied minors and street children (living with a foster parent or grandparent), and the poorest of the poor.
For this year’s Big Build, approximately 300 to 500 volunteers with join Habitat Cambodia in Siem Reap to build at least 28 to 45 safe, quality and affordable houses with home partner families.
