THE HEART OF THE SMILING GECKO CAMPUS
The central element of the Smiling Gecko commitment in Cambodia is our school and the kindergarten, which opened in 2017 as the “SGC HISF Education Campus”. We started with around 140 children, and today we have almost 400 schoolchildren. Every year we will take in 50 more until we have reached the maximum size of the school with 1,000 children. With a financing requirement of more than 1.4 million francs p.a., the school is by far our largest cost item. But also the most important. Because without a proper education there is no way out of poverty in rural Cambodia.
