CCC has been playing a unique role since 1990 in strengthening cooperation professionalism accountability governance of CSOs for effectively and innovatively responding to development challenges in Cambodia.
Do No Harmand Conflict Sensitive Program (DNH-CSP) has been implemented by CCC since 2015 with financial support from Bread for the World(BfdW).
