" To improve health, food security, education, and economic development in rural Cambodia in ways that are self-sustaining by the individuals and communities we serve. "
Trailblazer is most well known for helping our partner villages secure clean and abundant water. For each of more than 50 villages, we start by helping the community to dig wells and construct water filters. In addition to pure and plentiful water, these villages also need ample food to feed their families, good education facilities for their children, and opportunities to make a living.
Our four program areas—health, food security, education, and economic development—represent a well-rounded strategy for not just giving our partner communities a proverbial fish, but helping them learn how to live in ways that are self-sustaining. Trailblazer Foundation sustainable community development in Cambodia.
Trailblazer Foundation chooses our projects based on an annual local government assessment of village needs. We are honored to be one of only a handful of NGOs invited to this annual meeting. Through this bottom-up process, the villages themselves identify their needs. Their requests, in turn, direct our annual activities, which are “developing ripples of sustainability through community water projects."
