Located 5 hours North-East of Phnom Penh in a UN red zone, Ko Ki Village consists of over 200 families forcibly relocated from a slum. This is one of the poorest villages we have encountered. We are currently working at the grass roots level to provide sustainable organic vegetable gardens, access to clean water and water storage as well as starting to work with the local school.

In 2015 we partnered with the Seeds Schools to support the operation of three kindergartens located in the Kampong Speu province, two hours South-West of Phnom Penh. The Krangraluah kindergarten lies in a string of five small villages where there is currently no other school. RAW Impact provides school infrastructure, teacher training and school resources.
