“To create a religious society that is prosperous and progressive”
Cambodia is a multi-religious society. CACIG acknowledges this and will work with all communities for the benefit of the Ummah. It is the responsibility of CACIG to peacefully promote the understanding of Islam to all.
Prosperous means a situation in which the community enjoys a living standard far above the poverty level. Every member in this community is able and have the opportunity to participate in economic activities that provides a high level of income.
A progressive society is one where the community has a high level of education. The use of science and technology is also widespread at all levels of the community.

3. Our welfare activities are efforts meant to help the less fortunate in society in all aspects of their life. It is meant to eradicate poverty and illiteracy by, wherever possible, to improve their abilities to stand on their own two feet.
