KCD stands for Khmer Community Development. As their name says, they want to improve the quality of life through contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals, especially through promoting ownership of tools and knowledge about building self-confidence; environmental, health and nutrition issues; organic agriculture; etc., but also through the promotion of inter-ethnic peace, as it is the precondition for an economic and social development in harmony. Grown out in 2002 from a University Student Club that mainly worked with youth from the outskirts of Phnom Penh, they became a registered NGO in 2005 and moved in 2006 to the new project area in the South of Kandal province, near the Vietnamese border.
