Mondulkiri province is situated in the north-eastern highlands of Cambodia, close to the Vietnamese border. It is home to a large population of indigenous groups, primarily the Bunong people. With cultural and livelihood connections to the forest, they remain among the most impoverished in the nation. Our partners are helping innovative indigenous farmers create sustainable livelihoods and take advantage of appropriate technology and local resources. They work with communities to identify resilience strategies, improve small-scale farming, build cooperation and organisation amongst the farmers and mobilise them for forest protection and rights linked to economic empowerment.

Why support this

Our partners are strongly committed to a community-based approach to education and development that respects indigenous culture and self-determination. Together they will strengthen community engagement and collaboration for sustainable indigenous livelihoods and relevant education using foundations of their own mother tongue across the northeastern region of Cambodia. The project will address issues which hinder economic empowerment and equip them to take steps towards sustainable farming. It will address environmental issues such as their decreasing supply of non-timber forest products and climate change and social issues such as lack of education, debt to microfinance institutions and alcoholism/drugs.
