Challenge

6 out of 10 women in Cambodia have experienced some form of violence before the age of 18. Social and cultural norms as well as poor health, legal, and welfare services for victims of domestic or sexual violence leave most women in a cycle of vulnerability, abuse and trauma.

Solution

That is why World Hope is building capacity to treat survivors of domestic and sexual violence, so that they can thrive, despite the trauma they have endured, by training local social workers as they counsel and serve female victims. Through this program survivors engage with other survivors, feel heard and understood, and take steps to pursue their legal rights. Community awareness campaigns, targeting men and women, also encourage behaviour change and protection of women's rights.

Long-Term Impact

The project will support 300 women and girls to recover from experience violence, and allow them to thrive despite their trauma. By training 93 community social workers, other women and girls at risk will have the opportunity to receive help from skilled members of their communities. Through trauma recovery victims are encouraged to help one another, as well as other women in their community, enhancing community support and protection networks.
