In Cambodia, USAID helps citizen groups protect their legal rights
With their support to the Community Legal Education Center (CLEC) in Cambodia, USAID is helping to foster an environment where active citizens can finally have a voice in their government and demand broader accountability.
- "Since 2006, I have received five to six eviction notices. CLEC recognized the notices were inconsistent. We benefit from the NGO. With CLEC's help, we can stay here and are stronger than before because we trust our legal support. We know how strong the commune is. If we don’t have strong legal aid, we will be gone in a few hours."
