Youth from Cambodia and Vietnam sing a song of peace at the 4th Vietnam-Cambodia Dialogue in Sihanoukville.
Established in 1980, AFSC operates its Asia Regional office out of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, providing humanitarian relief, development and peace building initiatives for communities recovering from war and conflict throughout the region.
In Cambodia, AFSC continues to support learning opportunities for local non-governmental organization partners and government officials, and collaborates with various organizations on exchange programs dealing with conflicts related to the environment, foreign investment, civil society building and other peace efforts.
Several of AFSC’s Cambodia programs have evolved into independent local organizations. The local Cambodian NGO, Morodok, for example, became independent of AFSC in 2011, and continues to support community development in Sre Ambel District and surrounding areas in Koh Kong Province. Morodok works to support agricultural, small-business, fisheries and forestry activities that help villagers maintain their families.
