Kratie Province

800px-cambodia_kratie_locator_map-svgKratie is a province of Cambodia located in the northeast. It borders Stung Treng to the north, Mondulkiri to the east, Kampong Thom and Kampong Cham to the west, and Tbong Khmum and Vietnam to the south. The capital of the province is the town of Kratie, located in Kratie District.

Most Kratie residents are subsistence farmers or fishers. Kratie is one of the poorest provinces in Cambodia but, in 2015, was ranked fifth in the nation for the high-school exam pass rate. Schools struggle to attract teachers to the poor and overwhelmingly rural province.

 

In Kratie, KAFDOC works with:

  • Sambour, ChetrBorei, Snuol and Prek Prasop districts
  • 11 primary schools
  • 20 farmer groups
  • 30 commercial families
  • and 498  home-gardening families
