Building Good Governance from the Ground Up
Since 2012, World Vision has implemented the social accountability program (I-SAF) to improve governance practices contributing to the delivery of essential public services. Although Cambodia has seen major economic growth in the last two decades, one of the key development challenges the country is facing is the pressing need to address public funding on good quality public services.
Community transformation was possible due to funding from the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and Thankyou Group. An agriculture cooperative was formed to improve the lives of the children and their families. Children in the community now go to school and have nutritious food to eat. Farmers part of the cooperative have increased their crop yield, have access to loans and can support their families all year around.
Putting nutrition on the table in Cambodia
The first two years of life are crucial for physical and mental development, and without adequate nutrition, children are at risk of diarrhoea – the biggest killer of the nation’s under-fives – and respiratory infections, as well as insufficient physical growth. With funding from World Vision United States, 80 per cent of sponsored children graduated from the program having achieved a healthy weight.
Burning the midnight oil in Cambodia
Lack of light causes rural students to skip self-paced learning. Thanks to our partnership with Panasonic over 12,000 children and youth can now do their homework with the installation of solar-powered lanterns.
Ravy and her husband have been doing their best to provide for their family by selling vegetables from their garden. After joining the agriculture cooperative they now generated three times the income from before and grow a variety of crops. The agriculture cooperative was established as part of the Cambodia sustainable business development project funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) and Thankyou Group.
