The proposed project will fund for supporting survivors of human trafficking to access skill training based on the need assessment conducted by Child Helpline Cambodia staff and the decision of the survivors. Each survivor is assisted in identifying proper skill trainers and/or service providers who have capacity to accommodate skill training and possible employment for the survivor.
In Cambodia, young people represent more than 50% of the total population of 15.4 millions. They are active citizens in terms of moving/migrating from provinces to cities inside Cambodia or from Cambodia to neighboring countries such as Thailand and Malaysia or to other countries in the Asia Pacific i.e. South Korea, Taiwan and China due to poverty and unemployment. Human Trafficking in Cambodia takes the pattern of false marriage, sale into sex industry/servitude, sale into fishing industry.
To contribute to solve this issue of human trafficking and unsafe migration, Child Helpline Cambodia runs a free helpline service 24/7 and connect survivors and children and young people with problem to access support services. The revolving fund project is a new initiative identified in consultation with survivors of human trafficking. The revolving fund is to support skill/vocational training and employment for survivors of human trafficking who choose to stop migrating and work in Cambodia.
1. Children and young people including survivors of human trafficking access the free helpline service 24/7. 2. A minimum of 10 survivors of human trafficking get skill/vocational development and get employment in Cambodia. 3. Young people have information about self-protection from abuse, exploitation, and human trafficking when they migrate for work inside Cambodia or abroad.
