AHC is a Dutch organisation focussing on sustainable community development in Cambodia.
In 2004 AHC build a pre-school in Anlong Khong, a small Cambodian community outside Phnom Penh.
In 2008 AHC coordinated the following community development projects in this village:
- improvement of rain water management. Villagers and Dutch volunteers dug new waterways in the village to stop the flooding.
- installation of a garbage collection system. 2 new appointed garbage men receive a salary, materials and a micro credit for a moto. Villagers and volunteers also made new garbage bins.
- a former MT provides free medical help in the village.
- 55 people found a job making fair trade paper mache toys for an American importer.
- 4 enthusiastic young Cambodians found a job and training in AHC's non-profit shop/restaurant Aw'-kun Shop+Help in Phnom Penh
- via Aw'-kun Shop + Help and the webshop (www.shopandhelpcambodia.com) AHC found a way to raise funds and simultaneously market the beautiful products made by villagers from Anlong Khong and other local NGO's.
- coordination of an exchange program with Dutch teenagers, making them experience what it means to do development work.
- make a start with organising the village, helping them set up a community committee and become more self-reliant and stronger as a community.
High on the wish-list for 2009 are English Lessons for the teenagers in the village, follow up on the hygiene project, the community committee and legal rights training.
