A Love that Only Grows

Harley and Marie Lippman and their family are committed to caring for the children of Cambodia.

They Call Her "Mom"

In gratitude, the Lippman family helps children in Cambodia. Mom is Marie Lippman, wife of Harley, Genesis10 CEO. Marie and Harley, and their three children, have been caring for children in Cambodia for over 16 years, and consider them their second family.

Harley Lippman - helping children in Cambodia

The Lippman family is committed to getting a language center in Siem Reap established. They are fully funding their own center, the Children First Center, near Phnom Penh.

They help the children at their center with their education through college. To date, they have paid college tuition for 11 children, who contribute to their housing expenses by working part-time. The Lippman family will be involved in the lives of the children of Cambodia for many years to come. In exchange, all they ask of the children is "to think about how they can give back to the community, and to write to Marie, each one, about it."
