HUSK began working in Cambodia when the country was at a critical stage of development. The Cambodian people were struggling to recover from the effects of the Khmer Rouge, facing major barriers to moving forward and achieving their human rights. To this day, many communities in Cambodia lack access to their most basic needs and rights, including enough food, adequate shelter and safe drinking water. These challenges lead many families to take their children out of school and send them to work at a young age, further hindering the possibility of sustainable development in their communities.
HUSK was founded in 2008 and is registered in Siem Reap, Cambodia. They work closely with disadvantaged communities to develop grassroots solutions to these everyday issues, helping them to meet their needs, realize their potential and break the cycle of poverty.
