Grant Agreement for the Court Support Project Signed

Phnom Penh – Today, 17 February 2016, APLE Cambodia and the Federal Republic of Germany, represented by the Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs through the German Embassy to Cambodia, signed a grant agreement of 55,000 euro (approx. 59,560 USD), contributing to the “Court Support Project” to be implemented by APLE Cambodia for the period of one year starting from 1 January – 31 December 2016. This project aims to provide vulnerable children and victims of child sexual abuse and exploitation access to high-quality immediate and ongoing social and legal support. 

Recently, APLE Cambodia adopted a five-year strategic plan (2016-2020) to keep up its good work on the protection of most vulnerable children in Cambodia. The strategy includes four key pillars: criminal justice development, court support, community engagement, and research and advocacy.

As an organisation, we're privileged to receive this invaluable grant from the Federal Republic of Germany and will continue our commitment to fight against the sexual exploitation of children. "This grant is indispensable for APLE to continue its operations in Cambodia and ensure our children are kept safe and protected," said Samleang Seila, APLE Executive Director.
