Mennonite Central Committee is supporting Organization to Develop our Villages with the second year of a five-year agriculture and livelihood project in various districts in Prey Veng Province, Cambodia.
In these districts, agriculture is the main source of income for many households. The impact of a changing climate, low price in agriculture products, low agriculture yields and migration threaten agricultural success, and therefore food security. Gender imbalances also make it difficult for women to succeed in agriculture.
This project seeks to enhance food security, livelihood diversity and gender equality by providing agricultural inputs, technical agricultural resources, and trainings to 5,729 households. Training topics will include climate-smart farming techniques such as composting and drip irrigation, nutrition principles such as the importance of a balanced diet, gender awareness and women’s rights.
In total, approximately 12,445 individuals are being reached.
