AFD works in partnership with civil society groups and local authorities, specializing in providing grass-roots education, training, practical skills and building capacity within the communities to increase democratic influence on decision making and improving family livelihoods.


Action for Development (AFD) was founded by the late Mr. Mao Morn in 2004 until 2009 and Mr.Rith Bunroeun from 2010 until April 2016 in response to the need of the poorest communities in Kampong Thom. His founding vision was to alleviate poverty, especially of the families and households dependent on natural resources. AFD is a non- government, independent organization, not affiliated to any religious, political or individual ideology and was registered with the Ministry of Interior on 3 May 2006. In May 2016, under the direction of Mr. SOM SOPHEAK, AFD has continued working with vulnerable households and communities.
