Summary

With the lack of family knowledge, teenage girls have nowhere to get advice on health and hygiene, domestic violence, nutrition and puberty. We are working with nursing graduates from the Angkor University in Siem Reap, who provide twice weekly sessions to our teenage students in Tapang School. Having a sympathetic ear and advice will give the girls confidence and help them blossom to their full potential.

Challenge

Since the Khmer Rouge and the ensuing civil war, most of the elders are not able to accurately describe the changes in a girls body and what happens to them in puberty. Nor do they know about correct hygiene or nutrition.

Solution

Having professional guidance with young nurses will help demystify their bodies and give accurate information on health and hygiene, menstrual cycles, anti-trafficking, puberty, domestic violence and nutrition.

Long-Term Impact

These sessions will contribute to a healthy and empowered female population who take their rightful place in society. They will then pay it forward and spread the word among their peers, friends and families.
