Restoring hope to trafficked girls in Cambodia

This project addresses the serious and growing need for intensive, residential care for girls rescued from brothels and other situations of sexual exploitation in Cambodia. Hagar provides safety in a secure residential facility, along with holistic recovery services designed to meet each individual child's needs. Hagar operates one Aftercare Center in Phnom Penh and also serves girls through a community-based model in Kampong Thom, a three hour drive north.


Services are provided to girls from ages four to 14, and include counseling, medical care, legal support, and education, all in a nurturing environment.

Long-Term Impact

This project will serve 25 girls who have suffered egregious human rights abuses. In some cases, the girls' recovery and empowerment will break a cycle of family abuse that has lasted several generations. Our goal is to restore broken lives.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Excel file (projdoc.xls).
