Green Gecko provides security, education, love and opportunities to Siem Reap street kids through their formative years and into their adult lives, empowering them to achieve their full potential.
The project also supports the children's families and the broader community through long term health, education and training initiatives. Through outreach support, Green Gecko hopes to provide opportunities to the children’s families that will enable them to break the begging cycle and reintegrate positively into society.
Founded by Australian woman Tania Palmer and her Cambodian husband Rem Poum in 2005, Green Gecko provides a safe environment where kids can be kids and dreams can come true.
