About Us

The Golden Children's Village (Sovann Komar) was created to provide a safe, nurturing home where orphaned and abandoned children can develop – physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually – to their fullest potential.

Founded in 2003, Sovann Komar’s mission is to provide a safe and nurturing home where children can develop to their full potential – physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. The Sovann Komar Children’s Village provides orphaned and abandoned children with a single family home in a village environment where the children have: committed Cambodian parents, good housing and nutrition, quality education, and skilled health care. Most importantly, the children are surrounded by a loving community that teaches them good citizenship by modeling ethical thinking, participatory decision-making, non-violence, community service, and environmental protection. In addition to the 80+ children who reside full time in the village, Sovann Komar benefits hundreds of additional children by providing scholarships to attend its on-site pre-school; providing continuing education to community-based school teachers; teaching health and sanitation to villagers and assisting local health clinics; donating clothing toys and school supplies to low-income children; and improving the environment in villages through tree planting, village clean-up, home repair, and releasing fish into ponds.
