About Project Hammer
Project Hammer is a community project to help underprivileged children, women and families in Cambodia. It was founded in 2004 by a group of hotel executives from InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG).
Since then, Project Hammer has built over 100 houses for families in the outskirts of Phnom Penh, supported the completion of a four-storey school to educate 300 children who would otherwise be working on the city garbage dumps for USD1 a day to support their families.
Most importantly, Project Hammer has brought smiles to a thousand children each year – especially those marginalised from HIV Aids, drug abuse or abandoned street kids. We give them hope and a sense of worth.
The appointed five organisations that we are supporting in 2014:

In 2014, Project Hammer will extend its coverage to Laos and is working on plans to build a school in Luang Prabang, Laos for 200 marginalized young girls. This project will be managed by Marie Cammal of Sok Sabay. The school, with dormitory facilities, aims to provide a well-rounded education to prepare these girls for a better life.
