Lvea is a typical rural village remotely situated to the
southeast of Kampong Speu Province, approximately 62
kilometers from the closest provincial town. More than half
of the local population lives below the poverty line, and
without access to clean water and health care services. The
villagers generate their income from planting rice, raising
animals and from crop subsistence agriculture. Ecomomic
need has forced some to migrate away from the village to
find work. The existing infrastructure in the area is limited,
and not favorable for people to improve their living conditions;
however, this seems routine to the local villagers in
this area and they continue to follow their family traditions
and culture under challenging conditions.
The primary school, Norea Rum, is located in the middle of
the village. The school has one hand-pump well and a nearby
pond, which has water for year-round use, and is the
only source being used by the students and the villagers.
There are also some ponds in the village, but they dry out
during the dry season. The most wanted and needed thing
for the people in this village is clean water.
