Message from Executive Director
Significant progress has been made in increasing the standards of all FLD's operations and projects. This creates an environment at a community level that allows local achievements to take root and become sustainable. A good example is our involvement in establishing and capacity building 87 village savings and loan groups in Prey Veng and Svay Rieng in partnership with CARE. The groups were handed over to those communities in early 2011.
FLD's strategy is to work with international and local partners to create a beneficial synergy both during implementation and within the community. In 2013 new projects have been added through our partners, Climate Adaptive Livelihood of Agriculture Community (CALAC) funded by Cambodia Climate Change Adaptation (CCCA), Cambodians Eliminating eXploitative Child Labor through Education and Livelihoods (EXCEL) by United States Department of Labor (USDOL) through World Vision (WV), Nutrition education and extension by Food and Agriculture organization (FAO), Income Generating Project by DANA Asia, and Emergency Food Assistant Project (EFAP) by Asia Development Bank (ADB) through Plan International Cambodia.
All these positive moves, and the projects outlined in this review, would not be possible without our partners and donors. Their support, Understanding and advice means that we can give Cambodia's disadvantaged farmers and their families real support.
