House Building: Most of the families in Cambodia are quite poor, they do not have any regular income, can’t even buy some food for their kids; however, the biggest trouble that the families facing is having no proper residence, this happens a lot to the family including, widows, single mothers, landmine victims, children orphaned as a result of AIDS, etc.

This activity is to provide an in depth and meaningful experience for foreigners visiting Cambodia and make the people aware of poverty and the issues involved - the causes of poverty, the results of poverty and solutions to poverty.
