by Chab Dai International Vetted since 2011 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified

Summary

We train & work with government officials, religious leaders, teachers, NGO workers & community leaders in both rural and urban areas in Cambodian to raise awareness on prevention of trafficking & sexual abuse in their communities, including how to report cases using help cards. These individuals become key points of contact for reporting cases, and go on to train members of and raise awareness in their own communities. The project also hosts a radio show educating the public on these issues.

Challenge

Human trafficking and sexual abuse continue to be widespread in Cambodia, where there is little awareness in vulnerable poor and rural communities on the signs of abuse and methods used by traffickers. Furthermore, there is no knowledge on how to report cases of exploitation so that proper investigations and prosecutions can be carried out. Because of this, victims of rape and sexual abuse live in silence and fear, and community members are vulnerable to being trafficked.

Solution

This project prevents sexual abuse & trafficking by educating key stakeholders in vulnerable villages on how to protect their communities by being able to identify traffickers, taking preventative measures in high-risk situations for abuse and how to report cases if they occur . These individuals spread this awareness & educate others in their villages and form community safety nets that form an organic and sustainable basis for prevention that creates safe communities across Cambodia.

Long-Term Impact

This project has the potential to impact the lives of tens of thousands of Cambodians by preventing a significant number of cases of sexual abuse and trafficking through education and community support, as well as by ensuring victims of exploitation have access to justice and support. When the leaders of a village are empowered to protect their own communities, this protection is locally-led, sustainable, organic and makes a lasting impact by investing in safe communities across Cambodia.
