Sen Sok Community

Our collaboration with the people of Sen Sok:

Community First is a people-driven organization. Everything we do, from planning to implementation, incorporates the inputs and efforts of the people who will benefit from the initiatives.

We begin by conducting focus group discussions and surveys with village elders, leaders, and representatives of the larger community. During these sessions, our field team hears directly from the villagers what they see as critical needs and which projects would address their future priorities.

Then, in collaboration with the village leadership, we create a comprehensive plan to develop the projects that will improve the quality of daily life.  This plan incorporates milestones that meet the needs identified by the community rather than those assumed by outsiders.

Working with villagers allows us to create a bond of trust. Each time we implement a program, we are fulfilling a promise we made to them when we first discussed their vision for the future.
