H.O.P.E have grown with the Grace House Community Centre and watched their progress from afar. With both organisations celebrating their 6th birthdays in 2014 we thought it was about time we should celebrate our successes and collaborate together.
We are delighted to announce H.O.P.E’s support on Grace House’s Community Youth Leadership Development Programme and in late 2014 we signed an MOU to confirm our collaboration.
Grace House is an independent locally managed organisation situated 4 kms outside of Siem Reap, on the road to Tonle Sap. It opened its doors in November 2008 and since then has thrived helping the children of villagers who make a living from farming and fishing.
Its mission statement is simply:
“Enabling the community to become sustainable through education, family support and health care.”
