Your support for Child Rescue is helping to make a real difference for children in Cambodia who are vulnerable to violence, abuse and exploitation.
One of the projects you are supporting works across eight locations in Cambodia to mobilise entire communities around the task of protecting children from harm.
In 2017, this project reached over 96,000 people with training and awareness raising activities on topics including domestic violence, parenting skills, the dangers of substance abuse, unsafe migration and personal safety.
In both urban and rural communities, Cambodian children can be especially vulnerable to abuse and exploitation for many reasons. These include poverty and lack of knowledge amongst parents about the dangers their children face and how to protect them.
Cultural norms also contribute to the dangers. Physical punishment and name calling are commonly used by many parents in Cambodia to discipline their children.
To address this challenge, the project works with parents, children and local community groups to bring an end to such harmful practices.
