Ockenden’s main objective is to enhance livelihoods of vulnerable rural communities and indigenous ethnic minority communities. Ockenden localized to domestic NGO on 14th February 2007 in order to continue the implementations of projects and to take all responsibilities handed over by Ockenden International from 1st April 2007.

All key staff of Ockenden Cambodia were well – trained in a wide range of organisational and programme management skills. Ockenden characterises itself as a development organisation, tending to concentrate on areas where there are most vulnerable rural communities (including former refugee, displaced families, women headed households and handicapped people, families of demobilised soldiers) and indigenous ethnic minority groups.

In order to promote self-sufficiency within communities, Ockenden works with relevant government departments in the provinces and in partnership with its LNGOs and CBOs to increase the income and promote the sustainable livelihood of most vulnerable and indigenous communities through need-based programmes. Ockenden follow this partnership approach and make adaptation when it is necessary in implementing this programme. Ockenden consults with particularly CBOs partners rather than prescribe and impose.
