The U.S. government announced $5.8 million in additional endowment support to the Documentation Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam) that will boost the sustainability of the organization and its efforts to promote national peace and reconciliation through the preservation (both physically and digitally) of Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge-era historical records. 

Since the endowment was established in 2005, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has now contributed a total of $9.8 million to DC-Cam. Together, the U.S. government and DC-Cam are playing a prominent role in promoting memory, reconciliation, and healing in Cambodia.  

“Today’s endowment contribution, together with USAID’s past support, will provide the financial foundation for DC-Cam’s operations over the next twenty years,” noted USAID Cambodia Mission Director Polly Dunford. “We are proud to support DC-Cam’s efforts to create a brighter future by teaching young people about the value of learning history, preserving their culture, and promoting and protecting human rights.”
