We are a community for good.

We believe all people deserve the chance for a better future. From Southeast Tennessee to Southeast Asia, we implement replicable projects that give hope to communities that need it most.

Children’s Homes

Restoring Lives

Our goal is to provide a family atmosphere dedicated to the holistic development of our children, address a child’s basic survival needs and provide an atmosphere of love, security, dignity, and family. 

This, in turn, provides the emotional and physical infrastructure that every child needs to feel confident and empowered to dream and reach beyond the cultural norm – which for most Cambodians is a cycle of poverty, broken families, and dysfunction. We want our children to become agents of change – first in their own lives and then in the broader world around them. Our goal is not only to meet basic needs, but to ultimately raise new leaders.

Sustainable Farming

Stimulating Economies

PCL’s sustainable farming is a series of micro-enterprise projects designed to create a culture of self-sufficiency, responsibility, and growth in multiple villages in Cambodia. The concept for our farming is easy: everything in our farming communities is mutually beneficial and all projects rely on one another. Our farming initiatives include 

  • a Rice Bank in which local villagers borrow rice for the planting season and pay it back to the bank with interest during harvest
  • The Mushroom Project in which women are trained to grow and sell mushrooms as their own business
  • pig farming, a fish pond, farmer education, water filter technology, and the raising of ducks, geese, and chickens

Build a City

We are building a city from scratch.

For the people of the Andong Village in Cambodia, the problems in their community are large, and they are many. We believe such problems could not be fixed without completely starting over. At the basis of a healthy community is the opportunity for education, business,  sustainability, and progress. The goal of the Build a City project is to rebuild a community that has lost everything – to give the people new homes, new infrastructure, new jobs, and new hopes.

Eradicating poverty through education.

We believe education is at the root of all sustainable communities. Without education, our communities cannot grow and the people in them cannot flourish and have a chance at a better life. We provide various levels of education to people all around Cambodia to help provide a holistic solution to the cycle of poverty. We are involved in multiple education institutions, scholarship programs, micro-enterprise projects, and teaching seminars including the PCL Management Institute, Emmanuel Village Primary School, PCL Myammar, and the English Learning Center.
