Stong Community, Cambodia

The unpredictable climate in Stong causes frequent food shortages and flooding which is spreading disease. We have been partnering with them since 2008.

We’re teaching families how to store rice at harvest time as a community so that during the lean months they have access to a greater supply of food. To increase water availability, we’ve built a treatment plant and trained and employed locals to run it. Now there is clean water available for everyone and the profits of the business are going straight back into the community. 

We have already achieved great things in the Stong community by enabling parents to pay for school fees and helping farmers adapt to climate change. 

We’re working with the people of Stong to build a community where children thrive.

We’ve been partnering with Stong for almost 10 years now and are starting to tackle the harder problems such as changing mindsets about the right to education for girls or early marriage. We’re focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for Stong community. 

After these projects are complete we ensure all our work is sustainable, and that the community is set up to identify and respond to needs as they arise. We plan for our partnership to continue until 2022 when we will have delivered a multitude of skills and knowledge for the community to continue their own development.
