How Can You Help?
The RDI staff provides the vision, the drive, and the know-how. Volunteers from around the world working side-by-side with local Cambodians supply the manpower. What is in short supply are the funds we need to make more substantial inroads in solving the problems faced by so many - both here and throughout the world. RDI technology is developed and tested in Cambodia, but the findings and methods are shared so the poverty stricken worldwide can have a hope and a future. With your help we can help so many more. All donations are greatly appreciated and immediately put to good use.

In order to evaluate any data, the proper environment, equipment, and supplies are required.
