Improved opportunity in Cambodia
Long Sean was one of 12 families who worked alongside more than 150 international volunteers to build new houses in Smile Village in November 2013.
Today, Long earns extra income by selling groceries in front of her house. “My business is small, but I don’t worry about paying for the rent,” Long says. “I have even started saving a small amount from my earnings.”
Her increased financial security is only one benefit of her new home. She notes that since moving in, her children are healthier and her neighbors are friendly and helpful. “I hope,” she says, “that other families will also have a good chance like us.”
