New milling machine on the field
Dear all supporters,
As some of you might know CRDT participated at the GlobalgGiving Bonus Day on the 15th of June. This day was a big challenge for CRDT since it has allowed organizations to see their donations 50 % matched by the GlobalGiving organization. Through a hard wor and your amazing generosity, CRDT managed to collect almost $700!
Now we only need $910 to reach our goal of $10,000 to help 375 Cambodian women to have a sustainable life by training them and helping them to build their enterprise. More than 80 % of the work has been done! We can easily reach this objective before the end of the year with your help, so don't hesitate to talk about us to your network or to start a recurring donation to our organization through Globalgiving.
What can we do now thanks to your donations?
- Promote the fish sauce enterprise of 25 women's group for one month,
- Provide a training on livelihood for 55 women.
- Provide three months coaching on savings for the 375 women.
- Buy 15 books for the bookkeeping of saving groups.
- Provide start up costs for the development of a sustainable saving group.
Our beneficiaries don't know your names but they know you are helping them improving their everyday life and having sustainable livelihoods. They all feel grateful and deeply touched by your kindness and generosity. Thanks to your gift, 375 Cambodian women and their family are everyday gaining new means to improve their lives and impower themselves.
We are all very happy to live this adventure with you all around the world and sharing these information with you is a very good way to stay connected with you.
We would like to take this opportunity to present to you our new video. This great video has been made by one of our former volunteer, Raphaël. Thanks to his hard work and passion we can now offer you a great presentation of our NGO. Feel free to share it if you like it!

In June we also received the visit from the GlobalGiving In-the-Field traveler, Mary Caroline. About her visit she said that « it was lovely to meet Adélaïde and the staff at Le Tonle, CDRTours and CDRT. It was a highly insightful and educational day, both in regards to the program and to the social and economic atmosphere of the rural communities. I really enjoyed being allowed to be a part of the micro finance's monthly group meeting and even got my hands dirty helping mix some meal! ». According to her « CDRT is engaging underserved communities through several different projects that optimize the number of individuals and families reached. Through a combination of social enterprise, micro loan groups, climate awareness, professional training, among other initiatives, rural Cambodians find a catalyst for empowerment; they become their own means of improvement and development, not only for themselves, but for the larger community. »
Meeting visitors is always a great experience for CRDT so feel free to visit us if you are travelling to Cambodia!
Thank you again to all of you, and enjoy your summer!
