Articles of Incorporation

The Articles of Incorporation of Sustainable Cambodia lay out our vision and mission:

  • To help the residents of Cambodian villages build self-sustaining communities where people want to live, with healthy water and facilities, good food, health care and education for the residents, where there is environmental and social responsibility and employment that allows them to sustain and continually improve their quality of life.
  • To maintain a long-lasting relationship with the people of Cambodia, assisting them in increasing their own self- sufficiency and quality of life.
  • To so empower the residents of the villages in which we work that they will be able to maintain and improve their quality of life with a minimum of ongoing outside financial assistance, and where many residents will voluntarily stay in their communities or return to them because of the high quality of life created there.
  • To assist the residents of the villages in which we work in spreading this development to other communities throughout Cambodia.
  • Through spreading the model throughout the country, to raise the economic, educational, environmental and social quality of life for all residents of Cambodia.
