Who We are ?
RCEDO is an independent Cambodian Non Government Organisation which works to improve the lives of rural communities in northwestern Cambodia. We are motivated by a belief that all individuals are entitled to basic human rights and that, by working hand in hand with rural communities, we can empower people to bring about positive change in their own lives. Since 1998, we have supported rural people in more than 99 villages and 13 communes across Cambodia’s northwest. In the past 12 years we have successfully implemented decentralization and local governance projects and have pioneered social accountability approaches in Banteay Meanchey, Siem Reap, Battambong and Oddar Meanchey province.
Our team works closely with the poorest and most vulnerable members of rural communities to increase their incomes and participation in local decision making through empowering them to achieve peace and democracy. We believe that all individuals are entitled to basic human rights and that by working hand in hand with rural communities and the government agencies, we can empower people to bring about positive change in their own lives.
