Training on web design.

Training on web design.

The volunteer will be responsible for supporting CEDT in identifying the best option for its website. Depending on the results, they will either update the existing website with the team or support the team in identifying the best solution to design a new website.



Community Empowerment and Development Team (CEDT) is a Cambodian NGO that was founded in 2009. CEDT’s primary objectives are to empower urban and rural poor communities, improve their housing conditions, enhance their livelihoods, facilitate access to sustainable natural resources, ensure security of tenure, and promote the realization of their housing rights. The organization follows a people-led, participatory planning process.

Currently, the CEDT team consists of five members, including an executive director, a financial officer, and three project managers.

However, there is currently no dedicated communication officer within the team. In 2023, CEDT’s website and email address stopped functioning, and despite the team’s efforts to resolve the issue independently, they lack the necessary skills to identify and address the specific problem. As the website serves as a crucial platform for promoting the NGO’s visibility, it is essential to address this issue.

The mission at hand involves providing coaching and support to the CEDT team in determining the optimal technical solution—whether to update the existing website or design a new one. Additionally, the team will receive customized training on website maintenance and design to ensure they can independently update and manage the website effectively.

Intervention attendue du volontaire

Since the end of 2022, CEDT has received support from three volunteers to assist them in designing their communication strategy and communication tools.

The volunteer’s intervention will primarily focus on the following areas:

Assisting the CEDT team in identifying the optimal option for their website: whether to relaunch the existing website or identifying the best solution to design a new website.

Based on the outcomes of the initial analysis, providing the CEDT team with customized training on either updating the existing website or designing a new website. This training should be highly practical, enabling the team to successfully create a new website. It is crucial for the team to acquire the skills to independently update and maintain the website, as well as knowing whom to contact when assistance is needed.
