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

Can One-Stop Service Centers Meet the Gaps in Response for Child Victims of Sexual Abuse and Exploitation in Cambodia?

Our Interventions

We work in four holistic intervention programs, implementing the partnerships across multi stakeholders, with the aim to ensure social and systematic change in the prevention of abuse and protection of young victims.

Policy and Legislative Framework

With data and research based evidence, we support 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

We provide specialized police with continuing capacity development, mentorship and casework assistance, which allows for more effective victim-focused investigations and prosecutions of child sexual offences. We advocate for criminal justice processes to be carried out in full respect of the rights of the child and their best interests.

Victim Support and Assistance

Our team of social workers and lawyers provide and facilitate access to psycho-social and legal services that help child victims with their recovery, rehabilitation and access to justice. We advocate for comprehensive coordinated specialist support to be available for child victims and their families throughout the criminal justice procedures. 

Community, Industry & Media Engagement

We equip, engage and empower all levels of the society with the knowledge, skills, tools and confidence that enable children, parents, caregivers, community leaders, private businesses and media to identify risks, keep safe, report abuse, and take action to prevent abuse.
