Vision & Mission
Our Vision is to be an integral part of our local community in Battambang, Cambodia.We focus on the development of a community that is educated, healthy and prosperous and where disadvantaged members are protected, cared for and empowered.
Our Mission is to use our skills, knowledge, human and physical resources to make this happen…
Livelihood & Economic Development
This project aims to provide the poor families in the rural community with the training, tools, and resources to improve their living conditions thereby eradicating extreme poverty and hunger through values based holistic community development.
Social Enterprise and
Our social enterprises support integration of community members who have been trained through our programs, so they become actively involved in the development of their society. This way, our social enterprises are serving PTD’ social projects mission. The social enterprises also enable us to achieve a high social profit (positive impact for our beneficiaries) and good financial profit (stable incomes for the beneficiaries and for the organization). This reduces our donor-dependency and increases our sustainability.
Ptea Teuk Dong Community Farms
Our goal is to improve the livelihoods of locals through sustainable agricultural practices and entrepreneurship.
PTD started a 4.3 hectare community farm early 2018 as it’s become a training center for agricultural practice and entrepreneurship for families. Each family will get a series of training support in which they can use to set up their own farms at home or if a family has no farming land and needs further support, 1600 m2 of farming land and start-up capital will be allocated to each family to use for 2 years to grow vegetables and plants. In return, 70% will go to family and 30% will go to community to keep on-going operation.
