The Cambodian Human Rights and Development Association "started its activities in December 1991. The association was founded by, a group of former political prisoners who had been detained in the late 1980s for peacefully advocating human rights and democracy. Its first office was in a Buddhist temple in Phnom Penh, supported by a small group of volunteers who believed in the importance of democracy and human rights." [1]

In 1994 they received money from the NED which was channeled via a grantee called the "Private Agencies Collaborating Together" "to provide support for indigenous Cambodian initiatives, including the Cambodian Human Rights and Development Association, the Khmer Institute of Democracy, the Khmer Students' Association and other groups focusing on human rights and democratic education."
