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.
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.
