NGO Action will make your activities known

NGO Action will make your activities known

The controversial draft of the NGO law is still under debate and is one of the hottest topics of conversation among local and especially international NGOs operating in Cambodia.

Criticism continues, although many other countries have regulations for organisations similar to those being debated for the NGOs registered or looking to register in the Kingdom.

The government and its development partners recognise that NGOs and INGOs have made an important contribution to rehabilitation, reconstruction and development for the past 30 years. NGOs are viewed as important partners in the delivery of basic social services.

But the government says it needs to be able to better manage the thousands of organisations operating in the country. Those organisations say this will hamper their effectiveness.

Well, we at The Phnom Penh Post would like to hear about that effectiveness because we have a commitment to covering NGO activities and supporting the NGO sector.

NGO ACTION is a special supplement published on the first Tuesday of every month with interesting and informative articles on the work, action and projects of local and international NGOs operating in the Kingdom.

The areas and issues they cover are wide and varied involving almost every aspect of the life and lifestyle development throughout the nation through health, social services, the environment, agriculture, human rights, education and many other important every day areas of life.

We want to know about you; tell readers and the wider community through our pages about your backgrounds, your aims, your work and your projects, your latest news and plans.

We want to know about the NGOs who are making a difference in the lives of the Cambodian people, that “effectiveness”, and tell others.

Help us get yourselves and your work known.

If you are an NGO, work with one, represent one or are involved with one and their work, tell us your news, your story.

Our next issue will be published on November 1. Be in it.
