Full Belly Farm (FBF) is a small wheelchair accessible organic urban farm in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Opened in mid-2017, the farm is a place where people with disabilities receive food, shelter and training as a leg up in their fight against poverty. It is a nuturing environment that sows the seeds of dignity, cultivates hope and harvests empowerment. The farm provides residents with an opportunity to take control of their lives and to create a meaningful future for themselves and their families.
Full Belly Farm operates as an organic farm, but it also provides a range of other services, such as:
Presently there are four families living, working and learning at Full elly Farm. Each family has already made great strides in overcoming the challenges they face, both in terms of education for their children and livelihood development for their financial security. Four resident children with disabilities are thriving in the public school system and supplementary academic programs. Each family now has a source of outside income, either as a wage, or earning from entrepreneurial activities.
Our sincere thanks to Dieter Seegel for volunteering his time and expertise to film and produce the above video impression of the "Full Belly Farm".

Full Belly Farm is not a charity and we do not solicit donations. However, visitors to the Village frequently donate clothes and other items. These generous donations are either redistributed to local people suffering extreme hardship or sold to the public at the GFTV Secondhand Shop. All funds raised are used to assist people with disabilities.
Local business, expats and regular visitors to Siem Reap also run occasional fundraising events to help give the families living at Full Belly Farm a leg up in their journey to becoming self-sustaining. This support is greatly appreciated by the families.
