Daughters of Cambodia

The mission of Daughters Cambodia is to eradicate enslavement in sexual exploitation by offering employment opportunities and a wide range of social and psychological services to former sex workers. We recognise the impact of sexual exploitation as an abuse of human rights with detrimental effects on psychological and physical wellbeing. We seek to help victims find ways out of this situation and into a situation of safety, freedom and dignity, and to find wholeness.

Daughters’ vision is to empower its clients - former sex workers enrolled on Daughters' programs - with the internal capacity and the external resources to change their own lives, practically, emotionally, and physically. Our approach seeks to move away from NGO dependence and models designed for other cultures. The long-term aim is to achieve sustainable outcomes in making a real and lasting difference in girls’ lives. Long-term success is defined as a client remaining out of the sex industry for the rest of her life, supporting herself through dignified, rewarding work, and raising her own families to have a better future.
