Challenge

In Cambodia: Over half of women have experienced physical abuse before age 18, 25% of women have experienced domestic violence, 1/3 of men perpetrate physical or sexual abuse toward their partner, more than half of children are physically abused, 60% of women have not attended secondary school, 1 in 8 women become mothers by age 19, and women are an economic disadvantage in terms of wages and spousal economic abuse. WRC needs emergency funds to continue our vital empowering work.

Solution

At the current time WRC needs emergency funding in order to continue providing 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.

Long-Term Impact

When equipped with knowledge, women understanding their rights resulting in new found confidence and empowerment. 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.
