DCA has been supporting the Cambodian people since 1979, initially providing humanitarian response in the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge period and eventually shifting to development initiatives to help rebuild and revive the country and its most vulnerable citizens.
DCA is constantly finding new ways to work in the context of Cambodia’s rapid development. DCA has 5 partner agreements as of 2019 and work together with 18 local NGOs to take on some of the country’s most pressing challenges. We find innovative ways to respond to humanitarian disasters and to support and empower people to achieve food security. Interventions and innovations equip communities with cutting-edge technology tools to give farmers the tools they need to adapt their agricultural practices to climatic changes such as drought and floods. We work alongside communities, and especially women and youth, to remove barriers to empowerment.
Moving forward, DCA will continue to adapt to meet the changing needs of the Cambodian people, working with vulnerable groups, local organizations, government and businesses to ensure all citizens have the opportunity to live a life in dignity.
