Summary

In Cambodia it is sometimes hard to be a girl. It's dangerous to be a girl. It's scary to be a girl. It's even shameful to be a girl. Hagar Cambodia provides healing and restoration through aftercare to girls who have experienced the most violent and severe forms of abuse and exploitation.

Challenge

In the countries where Hagar works, many days it is hard to be a girl. It is dangerous to be a girl. It is scary to be a girl. It is even shameful to be a girl. This project address the serious need for intensive counseling and aftercare for women and girls who have experienced the most severe forms of human rights abuses including trafficking, slavery, physical and sexual abuse.

Solution

We want to make women and girls proud to be a girl. Each girl will be provided with a safe place to live, and services including counseling, medical care, legal support, education, economic empowerment and safe reintegration. Women and girls who have survived this level of trauma need highly-skilled cognitive behavioral therapy to begin to heal. All of our staff are trained and follow a trauma informed care model when working with survivors and only the highest level of services are provided.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help women and girls live resilient, proud, and empowered lives, in a country where that's often not the case. We will serve at least 100 girls who have suffered the most severe human rights abuses. Our goal is to do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes to restore a broken life. For those affected by trauma, and those who support them, Hagar is an expert in care and recovery. When healing happens the cycle of trauma stops.
