Summary

Women's Resource Center provides essential support, information and education to women and girls in Siem Reap, Cambodia. We educate women and girls on women's health, legal rights, domestic violence and positive parenting. It is through information and education self empowerment is facilitated, enabling women to stand up and lead themselves out of the vicious cycle of poverty that is often presented before them.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Pol Pot's 1970s Regime saw 2 million Cambodians killed.This resulted in major poverty, excessively affecting women and children. Cambodia is young, with the median age being 23 years old. Female education levels are extremely low, with many women illiterate and girls not encouraged to stay in school - rather they are expected to work, bear children and be housewives, leaving them dependent on their husbands, who are commonly physically abusive.

How will this project solve this problem?

Providing women and girls access to well supported and small group educational courses, they become more able to make informed decisions regarding their bodies and lives. Educating women about looking after their children's health and their own contraception options, their rights surrounding family law and how to recognise and escape domestic violence. As well, our group parenting classes inform women on how best to care for their children's nutritional, emotional and developmental needs.

Potential Long Term Impact

By providing information and education to women and their families we will break the cycle of poverty and create brighter futures for Cambodian women and girls. When equipped with knowledge, women become confident and understand their rights. This enables them to know how best to protect and look after themselves and make informed decisions about their own lives, and those of their children.
