End Violence Against Children in Communities

by Child Helpline Cambodia (CHC)

Summary

The primary purpose of the project is to make the free telephone helpline mechanism function so that children can report violence, abuse, and exploitation, speak to trained counselors in confidence and ask for support and advice. Secondly, the project aims to provide free and easy access to information and support to parents, caregivers, and communities to improve their skills and understanding on positive discipline, ensure non-violent interactive communication and relationship with children.

Challenge

Violence against children and young people remains one of the most common threats to Cambodia's young people. In 2013, United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and Ministry of Women's Affairs carried out a Cambodia Violence against Children Survey of over 2,500 respondents aged 13-24. The survey revealed a disturbing prevalence of physical, sexual, and emotional violence directed at children, within and without the household. This project will positively impact 2,000 children across Cambodia.

Solution

Child Helpline Cambodia provide services for young people responding to children's need for comprehensive protection activities: 1. Preventative services, through education and issues based information giving. 2. Secondary responses, through immediate and localized problem solving using child centered practice to train children in decision-making skills and giving referrals to low/medium level external agencies for clear-cut issues such as physical health, financial support, legal issues.

Long-Term Impact

The project will deliver support services to 2,000 children at risk of or victims of violence, abuse, and exploitation. Additionally, 100 caregivers/parents will be educated on parenting skill, child development, and early nurturing care and supported with counseling and empowerment services.
