General

This is a capacity strengthening project which aims to strengthen Salvation Centre Cambodia’s (SCC) approach to working on livelihoods, land rights and social enterprise with vulnerable populations in urban Cambodia; primarily people living with HIV and AIDS and the poorest of the poor. SCC’s target communities in the urban areas of Siem Reap and the outskirts of Phnom Penh suffer from insecure land tenure, an inability to improve their housing, limited livelihoods opportunities and low levels of income. Over the course of this project, CAFOD will support SCC to: 1) increase knowledge on conducting advocacy on land security, 2) diversify the income generation options that are presented to their communities, 3) learn about the concept of ‘social enterprise’ and prepare a business plan to transform one of their child care facilities into a profitable business, with proceeds reinvested into their development programmes.
