Challenge

The need for this project is based on the evidence of extensive and endemic mental health problems faced by Cambodians as a result of years of conflict and violent trauma. The result is a heavily traumatised generation as seen in the high levels of poverty, child trafficking, sexual exploitation, domestic violence, addictions and violent crime.

Solution

The Ragamuffin Project has created a Healing Sanctuary in the heart of Phnom Penh where we provide Creative Arts Therapy to traumatised individuals and families along with professional training & clinical supervision for therapists and caregivers

Long-Term Impact

We will provide a service delivered by Cambodian Creative Arts Therapists reaching up to 1200 children and adults annually, enabling them to reduce symptoms of distress and discover creative solutions to their problems and needs.
