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 additional funds to continue our vital empowering work.

Solution

Executive Director, Kong Vanthat, Sok SovanPanha, Amara, Sokmuy, Mouyhouy, and Tong are running the Angkor Empire Marathon (10km distance) to raise funds to support these women. Please sponsor them to help WRC 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.
