Planting trees with partners last July

Hello Friends, 

Thank you for your support this past year. The pandemic has created hardships for all of us, so we are especially grateful for your generosity. We continue to collaborate with a variety of partners as part of CEEJA, EU-funded environmental justice project. 

Our partnership with the monk communities has been difficult due to the COVID19 pandemic and their change in leadership. Nevertheless, we continued to strengthen our ties with local forest communities, and planted trees with them last July. 

As we look to the year ahead, we see great potential to develop our relationship with the monk communities and work with them to engage citizens in climate action and forest protection.

Thank you for your support. Please stay healthy and happy,

The Peace Bridges Team

Hello friends,

In the last few months, Cambodia has experienced an increase in COVID-19 cases, which has disrupted many aspects of our lives. Nevertheless, we managed to safely coordinate a community tree planting event in July. Participants wore masks and followed safety protocols.

With trees donated by JSC, volunteers from local forest communities (Prey Lang Community Network, Boeung Thom Conservation Community, and Prey Kbal Khla Conservation Community) and partner organizations (EHE and Licadho) planted 2,500 seedlings. They planted the trees around the Boueng Thom lake and in the Kbal Khlaa community forest to replace seedlings that didn’t survive from previous plantings. Participants also shared about the effects of climate change on their lives. 

We have an update on our collaboration with the monk community forest. Recently, the lead monk stepped down from the leadership position. We are in communication with this group to discuss the future of our project. In the meantime, we will continue to organize other tree plantings as long as it is safe to do so.

Thank you for your ongoing support. You are supporting and encouraging local communities who are working to mitigate climate change and deforestation.



Local volunteers will watch over these seedlings.

Greetings Friends!

Unfortunately, COVID-19 has come back around and is affecting nearly all aspects of life and work in Cambodia. We are currently under many restrictions: travel between provinces is forbidden, nightly curfews are in place, and some people are restricted to their homes. This means work as usual is not at all possible. 

Additionally, ethnic minority communities and non-governmental organizations have been blocked from accessing public and community-owned forests. Community members who volunteer to protect the forests cannot enter. Deforestation continues.

The good news is that the remaining trees continue to grow and we plan for the future. We hope that later this year or in  2022, we will be able to resume our activities and plant more trees. In the meantime, we continue to support these forest communities in whatever way we can. We regularly talk with them via phone or online to touch base.

Please keep the forests and their Cambodian guardians in your thoughts. 

Thankfully, 
The Peace Bridges Team
