The Cambodian Rural Development Team (CRDT) have sent one part time colleague to conducted monthly followed up with 21 CBOs beneficiaries in Domrei Phong Commune which consisted many villages inside to advise on any problems with agricultural production and/or techniques, aquaculture ponds, livestock raising/health as well as assist with continued maintenance of biodigesters and wells/pumps. Most of the work of our field colleague undertook involves monitoring and encouraging the beneficiaries to complete activities so far. Every beneficiary received monitoring visits, and every participant in a training course was followed up. This followed up activities and monitoring normally took place at group meetings. Beneficiaries are also trained and coached in self-monitoring. A volunteer group leader was appointed and acts as a trainer and supporter. The leader will ensure that all members of the group have enough support to complete the activities, and will report back to CRDT of every progressing. Our field colleague will also undertake periodic monitoring to collect data to be analysed for next evaluation reports. This will happen about once a month and two more comprehensive monitoring activities were undertaken from year after year. The skills trainings that were given were on activities that were already presented in the villages or improving on activities the beneficiaries themselves were already undertaking, therefore the resources for these activities are available locally enabling CBO members to continue these activities and monitoring data highlights that this will be the case. The improved skills in raising and construction were skills that will remain in the communities when the project phase out. Market development and savings groups were also aspects of the project that were in built to ensure sustainability. Both of these activities ensure that beneficiaries have improved finances and ability to manage money so that they can use this capital to re-invest in their business. However, despite a good start in this area these activities are new to the CBO members and a continued effort in capacity building will need to be sustained for these aspects to become truly sustainable. On behalf of 21 CBOs beneficiaries would like to thankful to the generous donors that frequently donated your dollar through global giving online in willing to support the beneficiaries' activities to pursue their living, and your dollar donation will support the group for maintaining activities of market development and capital for group's investment.
