Grace House Community Centre is a non-religious, non-political registered Cambodian Non Government Organisation (NGO) No 580. Situated 4 kms outside of Siem Reap, on the road to Tonle Sap, where the villagers make a living subsistence farming and fishing. Grace House was opened in November 2008 by Globalteer, a UK charity, but is now an independent locally managed organization. Siem Reap is famous for the Angkor Wat temple complex but little of the wealth generated by the tourist trade finds its way to the poorer farming villages in the area.
