Ksach Kandal

The community of Ksach Kandal has graduated

In 2019, the community has transitioned from sponsorship to self-sufficiency and World Vision is no longer on site. Local people and organizations have been equipped to take over and lead the community's development - and that is something to celebrate!


With the help of your generous and loving support, life in Ksach Kandal has transformed. Children and families are much stronger now. The community has met its goals, and its members are working together to tackles new ones. Your support will have a lasting impact for years to come.

Ksach Kandal is a densely populated community located about 55 kilometres from Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. The community experiences both flooding and drought throughout the year. About half of families live along the Mekong River, which floods during the rainy season. On the other side of the community, families experience water shortages during the dry season.

Most residents work as farmers growing rice, but there is only one harvest each year, and yields are low. Half of all households have food shortages for three to six months a year. In spite of the challenges they face, the people here are hard-working and hopeful.
People in Ksach Kandal are celebrating that they are now empowered to move forward without World Vision’s presence. Here are some of the accomplishments:  
 
  • Community awareness about the importance of children’s education has increased and 90% of families are supportive of their children’s career choices.
  • 56 youth have continued to university.
  • Health services have improved with training for health centre staff, management committees and village support groups.
  • Children’s nutrition has improved as parents learn to prepare wholesome meals.
  • 2,895 metres of road, 8 water canal lines, 4 dams and 62 culverts were repaired, providing access to markets and crop irrigation.
*Results reported for projects in this country from October 2017 to September 2018
