Today, i started to write another proposal, called “2008 Food Security Program for Cambodia”. I will work closely with Mr. Yi Kimthan, the senior program officer of CEDAC to write up this proposal. I would like to let you know that Mr. Yi Kimthan, Mr. Meas Samica, Chhin Chhunhoir and I myself (Yim Sok Sophors) will go to Prey Veng for conducting fact finding from 11-13 May 2009.
We will conduct the situation study relating to the poverty, to study also the situation of existing farmers groups set up by the previous CEDAC’s projects in that area, especially to find out possibilities of linkage those existing groups to this new call for proposal.
The result of fact finding will use mainly for the proposal writing with the combination of other secondary data relating to this proposed project’s target area. It is to remind that CEDAC used to implement a development project, namely “Improving Livelihood of Small Farmers (ILFARM-PV)” since 2003 up to 2008, the project was funded by EC through CFSI. Hope that the call for proposal at this time will provide opportunity for CEDAC to carry out the project with direct funding support from EC.
