About CACD in Cambodia

A group of Catholic agencies have met semi-regularly over the past 10 years in order to share information and solidarity among likeminded organizations on behalf of the poorest in Cambodia. In June 2011, Bishop Olivier asked agencies represented to do more to enhance cooperation particularly as many Catholic organizations work in similar sectors, such as health and education. An ad-hoc committee was formed to help better define this group. It was discussed that there may be natural connections that could be cultivated and enriched through joint activities and a more guided, unified approach to implementation and sharing. Several meeting of the ad hoc group have occurred and in September 2011, a facilitated discussion took place among Catholic agencies to identify areas of working together.
Objectives of the Alliance:
  • To strengthen the Catholic/Group Identity: As Catholic organizations are linked by a rich tradition of Catholic social teaching and thought. The Alliance will seek to increase our understanding of our Catholic roots as the basis for strengthening our overall identity.
  • To increase sharing of experience/knowledge among members: There is much experience and expertise among Catholic organizations. The regular meetings provide the basis for sharing this experience and knowledge to other members for their information and learning.
  • To maximize the charitable work of the alliance: It is anticipated that Catholic organizations will be able to maximize their work together. The meeting will serve as a platform to discuss ways to compliment and expand our collective work as appropriate.
