EDUCATION FOR DEVELOPMENT
PRD ensures an education for rural, vulnerable, and disabled girls and improves the quality of educational services for all 2,000 children in the communes of Samlout and Pailin within the provinces of Battambang and Pailin.
ENVIRONMENT & CONSERVATION
Through programs specially designed by PRD, participants in each province learn environment and bio diversity principles, forestry and the careful management of Cambodia’s protected areas, wildlife protection, human hygiene and sanitation.
PRD and its partner, ACIAR (Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research), help poor, marginalized, and female farmers in the two provinces to adopt modern agricultural technologies and best practices.
GENDER EQUITY AND EQUALITY
The Royal Government of Cambodia’s long range plan recognizes gender equity as a key component of national development, capacity building and human resource development. Under funding from ETFO (Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario), PRD is a leader in gender equity and women’s empowerment training in the community.
PRD promotes healthy, positive behaviors in adolescent girls by providing practical and relevant information on the health issues they will face as they become young women.
