Women's Resource Center

WRC empowers Cambodian women by providing emotional support and information that enhances their ability and confidence to make informed decisions about their own lives. In a society where women hold significantly less influence than males and disparities in health, education, economic opportunity and personal safety, WRC believes access to information is by far the most effective way to promote women's equality and human rights. Providing information and programs related to health education, mental health counseling, legal aid, family life, literacy education and work skills training builds on each woman's strengths, abilities, and confidence, with which WRC aim to positively impact the wa...

Mother's Day SPECIAL - See How You Helped Ny, 36, a Mother of Seven

Ny, Age 36, talks motherhood and WRC
Ny, Age 36, talks motherhood and WRC

Growing up, Ny lived with her adoptive mother and her adoptive mother’s daughter. She has no recollection of her birth mother. She grew up very poor because her adoptive mother is a widow who struggled to support the family. Although there was little money, Ny felt loved and supported by her adoptive mother, who pushed her to study and get an education. Despite this, Ny cannot read and write well since she stayed in school only until grade 3.

A mother to seven children ages 7 to 20, Ny had her first child when she was only 16. She had six more children with her second and current husband. Unfortunately, both of Ny’s husbands have been violent. Ny once left her current husband but since she had no home or work she became a beggar. She went back to her husband because it was the only way for her to support her family.

When Ny gave birth to her first child she didn’t know what to do when the baby cried. She didn’t know how to hold, carry or bathe the baby. She was especially worried about having food for the baby since she had little money and wasn’t always able to work.

At WOMEN’S RESOUCE CENTER, Ny learned about family planning and how to take care of her children. She learned about how a woman’s body changes as she grows from being a girl to a woman, and also about having healthy and safe pregnancies.

Ny will share what she learned about women’s health and reproduction with her own daughters. By educating Ny, Women’s Resource Center is making a difference for her entire family.

This Mother's Day, support a mother in Cambodia a chance to learn and grow, in honor of your Mom.

Watch Chantou tell you of her SUCCESS!

"Parents have a lot of responsibilities" - Chantou
"Parents have a lot of responsibilities" - Chantou

This is the story of Chantou, a participant of our Parenting Workshop last year. A single mother who left two abusive husbands, Chantou was profoundly impacted by WRC's free parenting workshops that taught her not to pass that violence onto her daughters.

This is her story. Her transformation. In her words. Please watch and share her story with your friends on social media (or simply by forwarding this email) to spread the word about these women in need. 

Chantou - "In My New Shoes"

This year, up to 50 women will come to join our parenting workshops.

This is 1 story of 50 - there are 50 more stories just as impressive and inspiring.

Last year over 200 people came to our educational workshops, on Parenting, Women's Health and Domestic Violence/Gender.

Our workshops are facilitated to local women by local, highly educated and compassionate women, in the local language, at our safe, comfortable and secure Center.

Thank you so much for making success stories like Chantou's become a new life path for women and their families.

Exciting New Year Present!

Together we make change, together we give chances.
Together we make change, together we give chances.

Friends, we still have $550 to go to meet our $1000 gift match! If you have given already, thank you! If you have not and are able, we hope you'll consider helping us. Your dollars will double instantly, and they go so much further in Cambodia, where a fine meal costs $3 and many live on less than $1 a day. The deadline for the gift match has been extended to January 7. Thank you!


Wrapping up 2013, and celebrating our 3rd Birthday, had us reflect on our achievements and set goals to continue our successful programs in the new year with funds raised from this exciting gift match.

Here's what you've helped us achieve over the past 3 years...
Since our drop in center doors opened in 2010, we have:
  • Provided 818 educational workshops to women and men,
  • Provided a safe space for 130 women to come to talk and share about their concerns and experiences,
  • Networked and collaborated with over 50 local and international organisations in Cambodia.

Together we enable women and girls to receive support and information to make informed decisions about their own lives. Your support enables women to empower themselves. We hope you see how far your dollars go, and the difference you make, here in Cambodia.

Thanks for your support and Happy New Year to each and every one of you!
