One of Outreach's Cambodian community partners poses in front of his home, refurbished with resources furnished by Habitat for Humanity Cambodia

One of Outreach’s community partners strikes a pose in front of his newly refurbished home, repaired with materials accessed through his community’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity Cambodia.

HURREDO, the Outreach-affiliated partner in Cambodia, as well as the community-based groups in their field program locations, have strengthened their relationship with Habitat for Humanity Cambodia over the last two years. 

Thanks to resources accessed through Habitat for Humanity, three communities, Tbeng Keut, Run, and Romcheck, have been able to address poverty-related issues they’ve been affected by for years. With the support of Outreach field staff, community members from these communities have requested and successfully accessed a significant amount of resources from Habitat.

Across all three communities, Habitat for Humanity, its teams of international volunteers and local residents, built 27 new homes and renovated and improved 49 more. Tbeng Keut and Run built 12 new latrines, renovated 14 more, and Habitat for Humanity was also a valuable partner in providing school supplies to 684 children from Romcheck. Additionally, 10 households in Romcheck received water filters through Habitat for Humanity, and residents of Tbeng Keut have been enjoying the larger, healthier vegetable yield, thanks to the seeds and other gardening materials they’ve accessed from Habitat.

Beyond the string of successful project partnerships, Outreach’s connection to Habitat for Humanity Cambodia has been strengthened through the incredible work of HURREDO staff, and further bolstered by the principles of the Outreach process. The community groups themselves have made the deepest and most important impressions, working as a unified team to achieve their goals. Habitat for Humanity has shown enormous enthusiasm for future partnerships with each community, signifying a well-earned reward for the communities’ effort, and an enormous vote of confidence in their ability to continue their success, wherever it may lead.
