Cambodia: support for families and renovation continues

24 Apr, 2020

Family and PE&D project leader in Phnom Penh slumIn substandard housing, families in the poorest neighborhoods of Phnom Penh risk their lives every day. We are therefore maintaining our efforts during the Covid-19 crisis to renovate many homes, particularly in two new neighborhoods, and to support women exposed to domestic violence.

With training in family budget management, the creation of two tontines (collective savings) for daily needs or to invest in small businesses, the women's groups improve social ties and cohesion in these fragile areas.

Finally, we have just completed and published an evaluation study of the first social housing policy of the Cambodian government. In it, we formulate recommendations to solve the housing crisis in Phnom Penh. This work will continue until the end of summer 2020, with 2 other NGOs, to propose financial, legal and environmental models.
