Alleviate poverty in
the isolated, chronically-
poor Khmer villages
“Train your mind to see the positive in everything, including change.” Cambodian Proverb
ADB signed three project loan agreements with the Government of Cambodia to provide support for road network improvement, provincial water supply and sanitation, and smallholder farmers development in Tonle Sap.
The Green Connection Center (GCC) is a demonstration and proof-of concept laboratory providing a transformative, flexible means for Khmer villages to use and understand sustainable technologies from sophisticated to simplified, from expensive to economical, from integrated to individualized – plus, receive tailored hands-on experience with green technologies and obtain assistance in funding a village application. GCC builds human capacities, improves health literacy and provides avenues for increased family incomes and reduced expenses.
GCC’s design incorporates cost savings design elements of Habitat for Humanity Cambodia. It is modular in design and can be expanded or contracted based upon a village’s needs. The goal is for every regional hub to have a GCC located on its premises. All GCC-classes, including room, board, and tuition are offered to village inter-generational students at $1 USD/daily. GCC curricula covers the complete spectrum of ‘living green’ and ‘building green,’ from renewable energy to disposal of human waste, from water conservation to water quality.
Members of a chronically-poor, multi-generational village family are the care-takers of the model site, are participants in the teaching processes with Khmer villagers, and provide an authentic understanding of each green component within the Model.
