Building Local Capacity for Poverty Eradication

Population and Development International (PDI) is an international
non-profit, non-governmental organization that works with local
institutions in Southeast Asia to reduce poverty and facilitate health and socio-economic development. The U.S. Internal Revenue Service recognizes PDI as a charitable organization with 501(c)(3) status.

PDI is governed by a Board of Directors which establishes the
organization’s policies, priorities and procedures for support of
foreign projects and foreign grant making. Its headquarters are
based in the USA, and the organization maintains a regional
presence in Bangkok, Thailand and Siem Reap Province, Cambodia.

PDI has been assisting institutions in Southeast Asia since 1983,
overseeing the development of country programs and research
activities in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. In Thailand,
PDI’s main implementing partner is the Population and Community
Development Association (PDA) – one of the largest NGO in the country renowned for its pioneering efforts in family planning, HIV/AIDS prevention and care, community development, and poverty
alleviation. In Cambodia, PDI-Cambodia was launched in 2010 to promote rural development and maternal & child health. PDA also offers related training programs through its Asian Center for Population and Community Development (ACPD).
