Challenge

CTC provides care and protection to survivors of trafficking, sexual abuse, and domestic violence through trauma therapy, skills-training, and social and legal assistance. Women and girls are much more vulnerable than men and boys in the communities where we operate. Gender inequality impacts social, economic and private life and can be a huge barrier-- one that holds young women and girls back from reaching for their dreams and spawns darker injustices like gender-based violence and abuse.

Solution

Lotus Outreach gives survivors of sexual violence the opportunity to participate in individual and group counseling in a safe environment so they can heal from their trauma and reclaim their dignity, self-worth and overall mental health. The project also supports the reintegration of the survivors into their communities when that is possible. Another component of the project are start-up awards for adult women to begin their own business and gain the independence that will ensure their safety.

Long-Term Impact

Programs that supply professional counseling for victims of sex crimes are known to reduce related concerns like post-traumatic stress disorder, addiction and suicide. The reintegration of these women, after the healing process they undergo, as productive actors in their communities also benefits Cambodia as a whole. These women become advocates for women's right and undeniable embodiment that the culture that views survivors of violence and trafficking as damaged "goods" is absolutely false.
