Help those impacted by the COVID Economy and those who are in need.
THE TOGETHER PROJECT (TTP), part of the Cambodian NGO Rural Schools Support Organization (RSSO). TTP founded in 2019 to deal with the impact Covid-19 had on the economy of Cambodia.
In March of 2020, the Landmine Relief Fund, an American charity started working with RSSO to distribute food to those who lost their job and saw their support system collapse. Buying 20 tons of rice, they thought it would last 6 months. By the end of the year, they had distributed over 250 metric tons of food. With each 10 kg bag of rice they also distributed a bag of ‘condiments’, including 10 packs of instant noodles, a bottle of soy and fish sauce, salt, and sugar. Each bag of rice provides 100 servings.
TTP is now moving to establish sustainable, long term programs so people can help themselves.

Greenhouses and hydroponics – Greenhouses can be established in participating villages across the province. Working with an agronomist from RUA, we will build a Hydroponic greenhouse that is capable of growing organic foods. The villagers will be taught by the RUA agronomists on what to grow, and how to grow it. The agronomists will buy the harvested crop from the villagers and sell it to local markets and grocery stores actively looking for product. The profits will be split between the village and TTP. Villagers will receive the majority of the money, with net profit used to fund the program.
Aquaponics – fish will be raised for sale, and their waste product will be used as organic fertilizer for the greenhouses.
Community Net Gardens – Beginning with the 24 rural schools that have been built by RSVP, community net gardens will be established, growing consumable food to feed villagers in places that have little access to water, no electricity, and are inaccessible during rains. The agronomists, interns from RUA, will teach the villagers to plant and harvest food. The government wants to install gardens like this in each high school in the country. These RSVP schools are so far from the high schools that few students are able to attend.
