Cambodia Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture Community Development Program
After three years of community development work in Cambodia, Global Service Corps has recognized the critical need for integrating a Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security module with its existing HIV/AIDS prevention education, secondary school education, and orphanage care programs in Cambodia. Currently, there is an ever-growing demand from the rural population and recognition by the Cambodian government to enhance Food Security and bolster agricultural resources in a sustainable manner. To meet this demand, GSC will draw from its 17 years experience in East Africa and transfer its successful community development model, Best Management Practices, and techniques in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security to Cambodia.

Proceeds during this month of fundraising will go towards the Global Service Corps Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture Fellowship and Development Program in rural Cambodia, one of the most food insecure regions in the world.
