Daughters of Cambodia is a faith-based non-Government organization reaching out to victims of sex-trafficking and sex-exploitation in Cambodia. We work to eradicate enslavement in the sex industry by offering to those trapped in it, opportunities to walk free and start a new life. Daughters’ operates a Center in the heart of an area of Phnom Penh brothels, where young women or young men wishing to leave sex work can start a new life, through employment in one of our 8 fair-trade businesses and a range of social and psychological services.
Daughters has developed a unique model in Cambodia, one in which sex workers come direct to the organization from the brothels by their own free choice. They come because they are already motivated to change their lives, and our programs empower them to set themselves free and teach them how to sustain their new lives for the long term.
Our goal is to empower young women whilst avoiding the NGO and aid-dependent approaches prevalent in this part of the world. We do not run a shelter, but offer jobs in our businesses whilst teaching and empowering those in our programs to change their own lives. Our model operates fair-trade workplaces, with good working conditions, higher salaries than average, training, daycare, medical treatment, counselling, life-skills classes and opportunities to learn about the love of God for them. We help at least 100 girls each year to permanently walk free from sex-work, and to experience psychological healing and quality of life through our programs.
