Your help is needed.

There is an urgent need to take action and stop the atrocities of child sexual abuse and exploitation.

Sexual abuse and exploitation has a devastating, life-long impact on a child, and more children are at risk with perpetrators changing methods of gaining access to children to abuse and exploit them.

But by working together, we can stop the threat and help rescue children. We need your support.

Established in 2002, APLE is dedicated to combating the sexual abuse and exploitation of children in Cambodia. APLE's mission is to strengthen national social and legal systems for the protection of children at risk of, or affected by, sexual abuse and exploitation.

What We Do

APLE works in four holistic programs, implementing the partnership across multi stakeholders, with the aim to ensure social and systematic change in the prevention of abuse and protection of victims.

Community, Industry and Media Engagement

APLE engages and empower all levels of the society with the knowledge, skills and tools that enable children, parents, caregivers, educators, practitioners, authorities, to identify risks, report abuse and take action to prevent the crime.

Policy and Legislation

With data and research based evidence, APLE supports the development of comprehensive and effective policies and legal frameworks to protect children from all forms of sexual abuse and exploitation that comply with international legal standards and the UNCRC protection measures.

Criminal Justice Development

APLE provides specialized police with child protection training, mentorship and assistance for ensuring that investigations against child sexual offences are carried out in full respect of the right of the child and their best interests and minimise negative impact and traumatisation on the children involved.

Victim Support And Assistance

APLE’s team of social workers and lawyers provide and facilitate access to integrated social and legal services that help child victims recover and cope with the immediate and long term impact of their abuse, ensuring support is available through the investigation and court proceedings.
