Village Support Group (VSG) is a non-profit and non-governmental organization for individuals. VSG was established in Battambng in 1994 as a transition project after Cambodia’s civil war to help people in Battambang and those living along the Cambodian-Thai border through agricultural and healthcare projects. By the end of 1994 VSG was transformed by the goals of four researchers to continue social development work in order to help poor and vulnerable residents in rural areas, in particular to assist them to exercise their rights in a just means. The first fund amounting to $3000.00 from IWDA was used for short-term rice project and a variety of crops to help improve the living condition of poor people.
Because of the reputation and good fame of VSG, Oxfam GB in 1997 extended its assistance for formation and strengthening of self-help groups through trainings on development of saving-group project and rice bank to targeted groups of VSG. From then VSG has been expanding its development work, in response to social development issues in order to take part in application of rights and democracy, such as projects of healthcare, social economic education in support of civil society,
community-based organization and relevant institutions in exchange of society on the basis of its role performance, responsibility in an accountable and transparent way to respond to social requirements and provisions of social services over environment, human rights, rights and democracy at local levels. VSG has been working in partnership with five international institutions and two local NGOs in which VSG works in partnership with DPA, Forum Syd on rights and democracy for community forestry and community fishery, and community-protected areas over natural resources management and gender-sensitization project, and adaptation of climate change.
