Exchange of opinions and joint discussions with Khmer Technical High School


[ May 20, 2024 ]
There are seven villages in the vicinity of the ecovillage, with a total population of about 12,000 people. In Cambodia's education system, education is provided free of charge up to high school, and more than 95% of students go on to higher education unless they have to work due to family circumstances. There are two high schools in the area where the association operates, and we visited one of them, Khmer Technical High School, and exchanged opinions with the principal, vice principal, teachers, and students about cooperation with high schools, such as environmental learning and cultural exchange. Khmer Technical High School has an enrollment of about 750 students and 16 teachers to provide higher education. However, even if there are library facilities, there are not enough books in time, and although it is understood that ICT education is necessary, unfortunately, there are many problems, such as the lack of computer Mr./Ms. equipment. I keenly felt that the future of the region depends on the activities of this school and other schools in various places, and that collaboration with Japan is important. First of all, in order to nurture the environment together, we decided to promote greening activities around the school through tree planting.

The second residents' meeting was held this year. I was able to meet the cheerful smiles of the people who had become familiar with me. The rainy season is about to begin, so everyone Mr./Ms. realized that it was time to plant trees. He expressed his hope to give the seedlings plenty of water during the rainy season, and to water them together during the dry season to grow large. In addition to the eco-park on the common land, trees were also planted in each house, and large trees were discussed in each household in the next few years.

Joint tree-planting activities with the University of Phnom Penh


[ April 8-9, 2024 ]
From April 7th ~ 9th, we planted trees together with 21 students from the University of Phnom Penh. The University of Phnom Penh conducts mutual student exchange programs in cooperation with universities in Japan. As part of this effort, the association provided transportation from Phnom Penh to the site, accommodation, exchanges with local elementary and junior high schools, tree-planting activities, and jointly carried out tree-planting activities. I was able to meet the smiles of many people, including local people and people from participating universities. In a few years, the trees you plant will grow bigger.

Meeting with the Cambodian Tax Office for local NGO activities


[ June 13, 2023 ]
In Cambodia, it is mandatory to report the income and expenditure of activities through e-tax every month. Then, in March, PVAJ will pay taxes for the period from January to December. Since our organization is an NGO, we receive tax exemptions for non-profitable activities. Currently, we do not engage in any profitable business, as all of our projects are subsidized by Japanese companies and the government. Therefore, it is exempt from tax. As a corporation, it is important for us to regularly exchange opinions with the tax office, and we are kindly asked to learn about taxation in Cambodia.
 

Land preparation work in preparation for this year's tree planting on site


[ May 5, 2023 ]

Visit to Preah Vihear Temple World Heritage Site


[ February 11, 2023 ]

I visited Preah Vihear temple. Over the past four years, we had expected that temple restoration projects in each country would be delayed and the number of visitors would decrease due to the impact of Covid-19, but the situation there has changed significantly.

(1) Entrance fee and summit truck fee
The entrance fee to Preah Vihear World Heritage Site was 10$, the same as before. And the round-trip fee for a pickup truck to drive into the World Heritage Site, where access to general vehicles is restricted, remains unchanged at $25.

I visited the approach to Preah Vihear temple. It is said to have been built by the Khmer people at the end of the 9th century and expanded in the 11th century.The approach is approximately 800 meters long and is located at the top of a cliff 625 meters above sea level in the Danglek Mountains. There is a 120m elevation difference between Gopura 5 (northern side, near the Thai border) and Gopura 1, making it a fairly steep climb. Although it is inside a World Heritage Site, there is a principal image of Buddha in the precincts behind Gopura 1, and there is a monk there, who took this opportunity to read a sutra.

(1) Situation around Agricultural Pond
Although early February is the second half of the dry season, there is still water in the pond at a depth of about 1 meter, allowing for sufficient water supply during the dry season. Two lifeguards continue to be stationed at the surveillance house to manage the facility.

(2) Growth of trees around the pond
Trees from the 2020-2021 tree planting project were growing smoothly. The large tree is already over 2m tall. In a few years (3 to 5 years), we can expect the tree to grow to the point where it will provide shade around the pond.
On the other hand, the area south of the pond and close to the river is a somewhat wetland area, probably due to flooding during the rainy season, and the growth of trees seems to be slow.

2023 tree planting project meeting with residents


[ February 10, 2023 ]

We discussed with residents regarding ecovillage tree planting in 2023.
From 11 a.m. on February 10th, we had meeting with 15 villagers, including the village chief, about past agricultural projects and plans for this year's tree-planting project at the Eco-Village.
(1) Past agricultural water supply projects
All farmers reported that they were very satisfied with the harvest achieved through dry season farming. In the past, there was no harvest during the dry season and people had to work abroad to make a living, but with the introduction of agricultural water supply projects, it has become possible to produce vegetables during the dry season, which can be sold not only for home consumption but also individually to residents within the ecovillage. It has also been reported that it is now possible. In addition, it has been reported that the water supply is not only used for agricultural production, but can also be used for domestic purposes (washing, watering garden trees, etc.), leading to an improvement in the living environment. However, there were some issues, as the water pressure decreased at the end of the water supply, making it impossible to secure enough water, and it took time to obtain the required amount of water, so improvements were proposed.

(2) Tree-planting activities In past tree-planting efforts, there were reports that trees had dried up due to lack of water during the dry season, and some small seedlings in particular were unable to take root. It was proposed that there be a need to secure as many large and healthy seedlings as possible, and that the authority should support the nursery project and plant high-quality seedlings from among them.
In this year's tree-planting project, the tree-planting area will be weeded and leveled, and seedlings will be secured during the period until June, and eco-village tree planting will be carried out in time for Cambodia's national tree-planting festival in July. It was suggested that.

[June 15, 2021]

We reported the situation of trial cultivation in the field to the Embassy of Cambodia. (May 31st) (1) Planting Eight types (tomato, water spinach, Brussels sprouts, pepper, cabbage, eggplant, rape blossoms, mustard greens) were selected from each farmer's request for planting, and F1 species were secured, and the test was conducted from March. For trial cultivation, the procedure is to clear the farmland, determine the planting range, maintain an insect repellent net, and plant seeds. After that, water management and fertilization were carried out. Some test farmers replanted seeds in May due to insect feeding damage (3 farms). The five farmers have been cultivated smoothly, and in mid-May, they shipped and achieved good sales results in consultation with neighboring markets. (2) Local meeting We held two web conferences on May 17th (scheduled for May 15th, but changed to 17th due to a local holiday) and May 30th. From the field, reports on planting and growth conditions, changes due to water supply, etc. were reported.

[October 26, 2020]

The original plan was to plant trees at the start of the rainy season in June-July, and to cure in the rain during the rainy season, but due to the effects of the new infectious disease, local activities became difficult, so tree planting festival and tree planting activities by villagers have been postponed to November or December. Trees will be planted in the dry season, and it will be important for the villagers to carry out curing activities such as further watering management. For this reason, the tree planting area will be moved from the original plan to a narrow area. We hope that a beautiful forest will be created in the eco-park together with the villagers.

Application for Ministry of Foreign Affairs “Japan NGO Grant Aid” approved


[ January 17, 2020 ]

〇 The Ministry of Foreign Affairs' International Cooperation Bureau is promoting a grant aid project to provide the necessary funds for economic and social development projects implemented by Japanese NGOs in developing countries and regions. We proposed an agriculture support project at Preah Vihear Eco Village for the 2019 project, and received its adoption. The proposal is to test the production of agricultural crops by supplying water to the test area of Eco Village during the dry season as a “reservoir construction project to strengthen agriculture in Preah Vihear Ecovillage Area”. Preah Vihear Eco Village has only a few millimeters of rain during the dry season (from November to April of the following year), and the land becomes dry from December, making agricultural production impossible. We communicated with about 50 households of 25ha on a trial basis, supplied water for agriculture from December to February, conducted trial farming, and planned activities to aim for agricultural harvesting. In this project, three reservoirs (40m x 50m x 3m, about 6,000m3 each) will be set up to supply water for three months. In April this year, the project will begin, and in March next year, the project will aim for agricultural harvest in the dry season.
