Providing access to clean, healthy water remains the core of what we do to move rural Cambodia communities from mere survival to more sustainable livelihoods. Once our partner villagers have access to clean water, the next step in our comprehensive rural community development strategy is to help Cambodian villagers establish food security.
Through discussions with our local village partners, Trailblazer knows that most villagers want to learn how to grow crops and raise animals that will provide their families with a greater diversity of foods, ones that are plentiful and nutritious. We have combined our agricultural trainings into a comprehensive "Homestead Garden Training," which will focus on the basics of growing crops for personal/family consumption. To meet that need, Trailblazer wants to host eleven workshops this spring, with ten attendees at each training. These two-and-a-half day trainings cost $50 USD per trainee. Thus, we have a goal of raising $5,500 USD.
With a $50 USD donation, you will give a farmer the ability to attend one of these agriculture trainings, and provide his/her family with increased food security. Given the average rural family size of five people, a $50 donation will provide greater food security for five people – not just this year, but for years, even generations, to come.
