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.
Past Global Village Trips
Vietnam 2018: November 3-10, more than 200 volunteers from around the world convened in Dong Thap province, Vietnam to build homes for more than twenty-one families.
Big Build volunteers helped to build safe and sustainable homes in Dong Thap, a high-poverty area near the Mekong River where flooding is frequent. Though most houses in the region are built along the river bank, they are made of temporary stilt-raised frames that require continual maintenanace and re-construction. Through the Big Build, Habitat Vietnam helped local families acquire more permanent, disaster-resilient housing.
