Challenge

In Cambodia, 5.6% of boys and 4.4% of girls are estimated to have experienced sexual abuse before they turn 18. Among children who live and work on the street the estimated prevalence is as much as 40%. A general lack of awareness and resources make it difficult for the Criminal Justice System to respond to cases of sexual abuse and exploitation in an efficient manner, while the general public lacks knowledge on how to protect children.

Solution

The project tackles all sectors of society: Government, Communities and children. Firstly, the Criminal Justice Development Program provides training to police and court officials to conduct child friendly investigation. Court Support provides free legal and social services to victims of sexual abuse and exploitation, while Community Engagement encourages the public to report suspicious behaviors while giving them the tools to identify potential child sexual abuse and exploitation.

Long-Term Impact

The program is designed for sustainable, long lasting results. A change at the governmental level is expected to be achieved with the training of trainer sessions within the police to conduct child-friendly investigations. The Court Support Program will provide victims with the support they need to rebuild their lives, and Community Engagement strives to make behavioral changes within communities by providing them a deeper understanding on what child sexual abuse and exploitation entails.
