It’s about diversity.

What is Cambodia like?
Cambodia, although small in size when compared to most ASEAN-sister countries which comprise Southeast Asia, is rich in heritage, deep in culture, friendly in relationships, serious about its families, cautious with outsiders ever since the days of the colonialists, accepting of the moment, and offering beautiful natural and constructed sites throughout the country. Before 1966, Phnom Penh was thought of as the Paris of the East. The country’s medical and educational infrastructures were renowned throughout Southeast Asia.
Today, after finding itself free at the turn of the 21st century of the ravages of colonialism, civil war, Khmer Rouge and Vietnamese, it is in its teenage years of shaping itself for improvements in every domain of being a full-fledged 21st century country. The Khmer have come a long, long way in the past 16-17 years. It has remaining challenges, of course. The Community is specializes in and focuses solely on the rural Khmer communities dealing with encounters in the fields of health, education and economics – particularly where these intersect. Cambodia needs The World Community, to apply fresh and renewed energies to Khmer villages. The Community, here in Cambodia, seeks to partner with willing members of The World Community.
How is The Community organized?
By the mid-2020s, The Community will have five regional footholds throughout Cambodia, located in the Western region in Banteay Meanchey Province to coordinate VLCs and GGCs; in the Southern region in Takeo Province; in the Central region in Kampong Thom Province; in the Northern in Oddar Meanchey Province; and in the Eastern region located in Ratanakiri Province. The headquarters location will remain in Siem Reap Province. Many of its educational, commercial and governmental partners are located in the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, although it is anticipated that no permanent office or structure will be located there. Lastly, as long as there is a sister-university relationship with Life University in Sihanoukville, The Community will have a modest office on the campus, space permitting.
