Right now, the most vulnerable members of our global family are living without the sustainable income, clean water or education they need to thrive.
Lat and Em are rice and poultry farmers living in rural Cambodia. They experienced poor harvests every year due to ongoing water shortages. Many of their chickens and ducks contracted diseases and died due to a lack of water – and they found it hard to make a sustainable income.
Through the support of kind-hearted people like you, Lat and Em were provided training on sustainable farming techniques, increased food and water security and improved hygiene and sanitation practices to help prevent COVID-19.
Now, Lat and Em’s farm is thriving and their income has increased. Their new skills – made possible by the power of your generosity – have changed their lives.

We work with the local community and partner organisation to design a community development program.
We make sure the program meets the standards laid out by the Australian government and the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID).
We receive your contribution and allocate it to a program where it will be pooled with other donations.
We send the funds to our local partner who uses your funds to implement the program.
Our local partner uses the funds on village-based and community activities – like the programs Lat and Em attended.
Our local partner organisation regularly checks on each community program and reports back to us.
We also visit the program and independently assess the implementation progress.
We report back to our supporters to show how their contributions have changed lives in the community.
83% of funds are spent on Local and International Programs, including vital education and advocacy programs in Australia.
4% of funds are spent on essential administration costs, including our talented people.
13% of funds are spent on Fundraising, so that we can maintain and expand the scope of our humanitarian partnerships, which reach over 3 million people each year.
Along with your generous support, this program is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP).
