Project Cambodia

Cambodia is a war stricken country, devastated by wars, civil wars, Khmer rogue, corruption and political instability. Over recent years the situation is slowly beginning to improve. However, Cambodia is still rated as one of the poorest countries in the world (by the UN), and millions of people live in extreme poverty.

During the Khmer rogue period, as many as 25% of the population was executed, and as most people executed were those educated, the country was left with a huge knowledge gap that will take many generations to recover.

More than 50% of Cambodia's population are 18 years or younger, and educating them is essential to Cambodia's future.


The Clean Water Project

Water based diseases causes huge health problems in Cambodia. More than 80% of serious stomach illnesses and premature deaths are caused by water born diseases. By providing access to cheap or free drinking water, and by providing basic education on hygiene and healthcare, its possible to reduce risks dramatically. 

Through funding from sponsoring corporations, local charity work, collaboration with Trailblazers Foundation (US Charity) and but not least volunteer workers,  NEDO can provide free access to clean drinking water to villages in rural areas of Siem Reap. Community training, and basic hygiene and healthcare education plays an important part of the project. The Water Filter Project was initiated in 2006 and now (April 2013)  serves more than 8.500 children and adults.


Love Cards

Love Cards is a local charity and non profit business started up by NEDO. Love Cards  provide free art classes for schools in the Siem Reap Province. As part of the art program, children and youth at the schools paint postcards that Love Cards sell through a growing distribution network within the tourism industry in Cambodia. Cards are sold on a voluntarily basis without sales commission.  Profit from cards sold is used to provide funding for educational and recreational projects at the same schools.
