Since the middle of the last century, Cambodia has been ravaged by decades of civil war and suffered terribly during the Vietnam war and the terror regime of the Khmer Rouge. As a consequence, Cambodia is now one of the poorest countries in the world. In its capital Phnom Penh alone, tens of thousands of children live on the streets, suffering hunger, illness and abuse. To provide these children and their families with a life in decency, we need to provide help on the ground. Smiling Gecko is dedicated to helping these people – be it in the form of direct aid or through supporting other NGOs. Smiling Gecko focuses on areas of greatest need and helps people to help themselves through sustainable cluster projects.   




Smiling Gecko School
“Choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life. “ – This quote is always what I feel when coming to the school since Day 1.  The passion for teaching and the goal to help  humanity are all at the Smiling Gecko Village School. The students are amazingly engaged in everything and always eager to learn. I remembered using the LCD projector which I realized was actually their first time seeing a big screen. For them it felt like a cinema theatre as they had never experienced a real one. – On our field trip the kids were mesmerized by the big buildings which their small villages do not have. – As a staff, I adore the way the members are handled; supported and given free will. It is a life changing experience where you can expand and enhance your teaching career by the trust given by the administration. In addition: I will call it a wake-up call, since it will make you appreciate life more.” -Ann- Nursery School Teacher   If you would like to add a comment about this school please email you text to
