"Before Green Gecko, there were many children on the streets of Siem Reap, and most of us had to carry our baby brothers or sisters begging for money until early morning in front of the tourist bars." "Sometimes when our parents had no money, they would get angry and hit us to make us beg more. We felt sad and tired, sometimes we fell asleep on the streets, many times we wanted to cry." "At Green Gecko, now we are like one big family living together. We get lots of food, care and love." "We go to Cambodian school, and English classes too. We also have extra lessons at Gecko to find out more about the world we live in, and ourselves. We learn to solve problems with logic, and express ourselves through art and dance." "We learn how to make good and safe decisions and to be responsible. We are taught how to protect ourselves with strong bodies and strong minds." "Green Gecko cares about our families too. Each week they help them with their rent and healthy food. They send our mums to school to learn and pay for the doctor when our families are sick. They set our parents up in business so they can be proud people too." "Because we started to learn so late, some of us will not finish our education until we are thirty! But Tania and Rem say they don't worry about that, they just say be the best student you can be and we will help you all the way." "We all feel so grateful for what Green Gecko has given to us and our families. We all feel so happy and so lucky. " "For me, I dream to have my own NGO, so I can help other beggar children change their lives… just like me. For the first time, I feel excited about my life. My name is Kim Suan, I'm a Green Gecko kid and this is my story."
