: REHASH TRASH
Following a Sustainable Families Forum (held in January 2015), led by the students for their parents, Green Gecko Project developed a plan that would provide a regular income in a safe and happy environment for their mothers so they can better look after their families. The result is Rehash Trash, a daily workshop that turns dirty roadside rubbish into funky fashion. Rehash Trash is not only making great products and cleaning up the environment; it is changing and empowering the lives of our mothers and their families. Each of the women attend a morning workshop 5 days a week, which ends in an engaging Khmer literacy class... where our mothers are learning the Khmer alphabet and how to read and write for the very first time. Every week the mums also excitedly take it in turns to attend the Made in Cambodia Market, giving them an opportunity to see their own products on display and being sold to the public. They are involved in every step of the Rehash Trash process, from the collection and washing of plastic bags, to the preparation and crocheting amazing products, to promoting Rehash Trash in Siem Reap. Rehash Trash... a social enterprise which is providing a sustainable future not only for the children and their families but also for the Siem Reap environment. www.facebook.com/rehashtrash

:: FOOTPRINTS FARM
Footprints Farm is a flourishing permaculture farm of various vegetables, fruits and roaming animals. Not only does the farm deliver fresh, chemical free food for Gecko, it also provides an outdoor classroom for all of our students, and employment and training opportunities for the local community and our young adults. Even the mothers at the Women’s Village now have their very own ‘plot of land’ to grow fresh, chemical free vegetables and herbs. www.facebook.com/footprintsfarm

:: PURPLE MANGO NON PROFIT WELLNESS CENTRE

Purple Mango Wellness Centre is Green Gecko’s latest non-profit social enterprise that provides treatment spaces for visiting and local practitioners from all forms of holistic therapies. Services provided will primarily be offered to the expat community using an affordable fee structure, which will then enable training programs as well as free access to these therapies to the Khmer community through NGOs and broader community collaborations. www.facebook.com/purplemangowellness
