Grace House was founded in 2008 and is located between Siem Reap and Tonle Sap in the Northwest of Cambodia. We provide both on site and outreach development services to the local community. Through education, family and community support we aim to improve the livelihoods of this generation and the next.
To give children opportunities to learn, develop and thrive regardless of gender, economic circumstances, or disability. To provide a place where those in the community can seek advice and support, in order to achieve a better future for themselves and for following generations.
