During Project Design
During Project Implementation


The long-term goal of the Project is to reduce rural poverty in northwestern Cambodia on a sustainable basis. Its purpose is to enable the most vulnerable groups of the villages to contribute more effectively to the development of their communities and to share equally in its benefits. The very poor are otherwise excluded or exclude themselves from these activities because they have the urgent need to feed their families every day and they have to think how to survive another day. The project objectives are to (i) improve the food security and income status of the poor through production support and skill training, and (ii) raise confidence and initiative to overcome the emotional and social legacy of the war.
