Summary

Senhoa supports 25 girls who are either survivors of or highly vulnerable to human trafficking and sexual exploitation and have experienced victimization (rape, gang rape, domestic violence, human trafficking, acid attacks, honor-based violence) through employment, education, and programs for self-empowerment. This project equips girls with the income and skills needed for sustainable freedom.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

According to the State Department, Cambodia is a source, destination, and transit country for women and children trafficked for the purpose of sexual exploitation. Even more startling is the increase in the sale of virginity of children, particularly those from undocumented families. This project aims to provide education and employment to these survivors, while currently generating sufficient profit through our social businesses to remit back to our community development projects in Cambodia.

How will this project solve this problem?

Economic opportunities (safe employment, technical training courses, income-generating opportunities); Education (scholarships & soft skills training, business start-up, women empowerment); Therapy (counseling sporting activities).

Potential Long Term Impact

The program aims to reach 25 girls through our vocational training program & our transition housing program. Our goal is for the participants to "graduate" from the program within 2 years to become independent and free from exploitation.
