Women's Resource Center provides women and girls in Cambodia with emotional support, referral services, and informal education so they can be empowered to make informed decisions about their lives.
Women's Resource Center believes that providing Cambodian women with access to information and knowledge is the most effective method of self-empowerment. These empowered women can then stand up and lead themselves out of the vicious cycle of poverty that is often presented before them.
First and foremost, we are a drop-in center where local women can safely ask questions regarding any aspect of their life and their children's lives. Our trained staff use support services techniques and counseling skills to assist these women to best approach their unique situation.
Through our free in-center education workshops on topics such as women's health, women's rights, domestic violence, positive parenting and financial empowerment, we're able to help women gain the skills and confidence they need to change their lives for the better.
We also engage community action to help prevent gender-based violence and discrimination. Working with local schools and commune chiefs, we provide free basic education to high school students and villagers on topics such as alcohol awareness and peer pressure, domestic violence awareness, gender roles and gender equality, and safe migration.
