As a friend of Cambodia, the U.S. government is committed to supporting work in transitional justice and peace and reconciliation. Through USAID, we provide financial support to TPO and other organizations working in the transitional justice sector. As USAID’s partner for the Truth, Reconciliation and Healing Towards a Shared Future project, TPO works directly with former Khmer Rouge members and with the survivors of the regime. Their extraordinary efforts have helped Cambodian people cope with trauma and learn how to live peacefully together in the same communities regardless if one was a former Khmer Rouge member or a survivor of the Khmer Rouge regime. Many of those who suffered under the Khmer Rouge have been able to move forward with their lives.
