About Us

Our Philosophy


Urbano Village was born in response to this little girl

living in this humble abode.

She lives in the city of Phnom Penn, Cambodia & calls its largest rubbish dump her home. With no help at hand from her government, her future isn't bright, but thanks to an aid-funded school on the edge of the rubbish dump, she & her friends (known as the rubbish dump kids) get to go to school where they're provided a daily shower, uniform, education & a weekly bag of rice for their families. Despite having very little, the joy in that school is like none we've ever experienced, & we want to spread it around.

 

In fact, we want everyone to have a piece of it; to live in a world where we're all valued above profit & the bottom line. At our heart is the belief:

"I may only be one person, but I can be one person who makes a difference."

 

We all have a super power & it goes by the name of consumer power; & each day we make choices about how we use it. Everyday big business & governments make decisions based around how you & I spend our money. We provide you with a village where you can use your super power to change stuff in this world that you really care about.
