  • Organisation

    The Federation of Association Supporting Older People AEK PHNOM (FASOA) is a non-governmental, independent association registered by the Ministry of Interior. FASOA is composed of non-political individuals promoting non-religious discrimination. It was established in October 2013 with the support of HelpAge-Cambodia. Since then it has been working with Older People Associations (OPAs) and its members, particularly older women, women with disabilities and poor families and communities. It also does social work in areas of gender and disability, agriculture, revolving funds, income generation with facilitation and technical support from HelpAge-Cambodia.

    FASOA and seven other federations work in partnership with various stakeholders, local authorities, sub-national level government organisations such as the Provincial Department of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation (PoSVY), Provincial Department of Women Affairs (PWA) and Provincial Department of Health (PDH).

    FASOA strengthens OPA committees and sub-committees’ capacities on leadership, management, financial management, bookkeeping, and technical support in facilitating, coordinating, and problem solving. It also supports OPA and their members in mainstreaming gender and empowering people with disabilities to enable opportunity, voice problems, concerns and needs in community development, commune investment plans and call for supports from duty bearers. FASOA envisions older people in Cambodia to live with dignity, hopefulness, without isolation, and working together in order to advocate towards government and NGO to bring benefits to older people. In line with this vision, the organisation’s objective is to enhance good collaboration with governments and stakeholders to get support and increase older people’s livelihood, right, and economic, as well as to strengthen OPA committees and sub-committees to have better plan and achieve more.
