Regeneration is the aim of this project. In Phnom Penh there is around 300 informal settlements where people have made their home and have a lack of water and sanitation. Although Cambodia is one of the fastest growing economies the country remains one of the most least developed. A problem we can't tackle alone, partnered with University of New South Wales we are able to access their resources to help build up resilience from the bottom, using their support for research to build a better slum
Cambodia continues to have a serious infrastructure gap. Water, sanitation, roads and solid waste management are among the most critical services in need of improvement. And lack of access to year-round all-weather roads impacts food value-chains and access to health, education and other public services. This project has partnered with key academics from UNSW to help educated, empower and inspire the local community leaders to build resilience from the ground up.
Working with the community we will conduct vital research to ensure we explore all opportunities and options with the community and with our guidance they will choose the best structure to tackle the current crisis they face. Upon agreeing a plan we will use the funds that we raise to help the community transform their own community and rebuild a resilient and safe community that will be sustainable long term and ensure it provides safe water and sanitation to help fight the poverty gap
Long term this research will be used to transform all current poverty slums across Cambodia and help living conditions keep up with the economic growth of the country.
