Feeding a nation

For many Cambodian families, rice provides the primary means of making a living and the main staple of every meal. Since 1999, Oxfam America has been improving the lives of small farmers in East Asia by increasing their rice yields and mobilizing community savings groups. With these programs, Oxfam America is empowering farmers through networking and promoting ecologically-friendly agricultural approaches. In addition, Oxfam America advocates for policies that create a better environment for farmers to produce and sell their agricultural products so that they can invest in their family’s future.
