A project called Mekong Big Build was implemented after closing down a landfill in Stueng Meanchey in the year 2009. Homeless families that had lived off collecting rubbish were suddenly relocated to rented sheds in Phnom Penh.

Smile Village is part of the Mekong Big Build project and its aim is to build a “new city” which would provide shelter to families from Stueng Manchey, improving their living conditions. The measures undertaken as part of the project include constructing 50 residential venues, both for rent and to be privately owned.

Smile Village is situated within biking distance from the landfill area. This will help the residents find a job in the city and develop new skills such as gardening or tailoring. The project’s main beneficiaries are families without access to decent living conditions. Now they will be safe and protected against monsoons, flooding and will have access to drinking water and sanitary facilities.

In Cambodia you can still see the traces of wars that swept through the country in the last decades. Although the rate of poverty has gone down in recent 10 years, there are still many problems that need to be solved. The families that had lived off collecting waste at a landfill in Stung Meanchey, were relocated after it was closed down. This forced them to settle down in even more precarious conditions. At the landfill, which was a 100 acres large hill of rotting trash from the whole country, as many as 2,000 people lived and worked, including 600 children. A village next to the landfill existed for over 20 years.

Living conditions provided to the inhabitants of the Smile Village will allow them to develop microbusinesses. This will lead to higher income rates of the families, facilitated access to education for children, and creating a space for children where they can do their homework.
