Japan’s “KUSANONE” Projects started in Cambodia in 1991 in order to support Cambodia’s reconstruction and development at the grassroots level. The assistance aims to protect those who are vulnerable due to various factors such as poverty and/or misfortunes that directly threaten their lives, livelihood, and dignity, as well as to promote self-reliance of local communities. Since 1991, the Government of Japan has provided over US$60 million for mainly local authorities and non-governmental organizations to implement 624 KUSANONE projects throughout Cambodia. This project will ensure the safer and more comfortable learning environment.
