“New Homes and A Farm
One of the greatest challenges families faced when they relocated to a new community in Oudong, Kandal province from a municipal dumpsite in Phnom Penh was finding steady work.
Habitat for Humanity Cambodia is working together with International Children’s Care Australia (ICCA) to develop a farm on two hectares of land. ICCA is providing agriculture and management training with the goal of turning the farm over to the community in three years’ time.
The farm will grow fruits and vegetables that Cambodians consume on a daily basis, with other areas set aside for raising chickens and fish. Initially, produce will be sold locally. Later, to increase incomes, markets will be sought further afield.
The Kingdom of Cambodia, located in the heart of Southeast Asia, is an ancient land with a young population. The median age is 22 years. Known for its historical temple complex at Angkor, Cambodian kings once ruled over.”
