About Smiling Gecko
Smiling Gecko, is a charity dedicated to helping children and families in rural Cambodian communities who face hardship.

To provide these communities with a decent life, Smiling Gecko provide them with aid that will have a lasting effect and address the hardship faced within their communities.
Smiling Gecko Projects
Smiling Gecko has adopted a holistic approach aimed at improving the quality of life of an entire community through cluster projects. Since 2014, Smiling Gecko has built an open cluster model of living to improve the quality of life for rural Cambodians. Within the cluster is agriculture, crafts, tourism and catering, as well as schooling and education. All projects are of course interlinked.The medium term goal is to have the cluster finance itself. Cluster projects create model rural communities that operate as self-sustained entities and offer education and training for gainful employment in jobs.
