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.
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.
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.
This project has provided additional documentation in a DOCX file (projdoc.docx).
