Funding shake-up

The US Agency for International Development awarded $4.7 milllion to East West Management

Inc to strength-en the monitoring, investigation, and follow-up of human rights cases.

The International Republican Institute will receive $800,000 for political and civil

rights monitoring.

The funding decision may affect a number of local human rights NGOs, including the

Khmer Kampuchea Krom Human Rights Association, which is facing closure due to a serious

lack of funds.

Other groups affected are Licadho, the Cambodia Defenders Project, Adhoc, Center

for Social Development, Cambodia Legal Education Center.

The NGOs will have to reapply for funding, which was previously channeled through

the Asia Foundation.
