    • Project

      To continue their influencing journey from a previous Influencing grant, Inclusion of Elderly aims to increase the voices of elderly people who are marginalised and discriminated, particularly elderly women and elderly people with disabilities to access and be prioritised in the government social protection schemes and social services.  This project intends to strengthen the voice and function of Cambodia Ageing Network (CAN) and its grassroots representatives to expand their network including all Voice rightsholder groups.

      Another consortium member, Cambodia YMCA, is responsible in support/ strengthening capacities of CAN member in Phnom Penh as they are newly established.

      In responding to the principle of “Leave no one behind”, the project encourages other Voice’s grantees to be part of this project to promote the intersectionality among all rightsholder groups to work with or for elderly people, women, people  with disabilities, indigenous people and LGBTI persons. The project covers five provinces: Battambang, Banteay Meanchey, Siem Reap, Kompong Thom, and Phnom Penh.

      HelpAge Cambodia succeeded in forming the Cambodian Aging Network (CAN), previously called the Cambodian Older People’s Alliance (COPA) as a vehicle to amplify and ensure that the voices of elderly people, particularly the most marginalised are heard and responded by the government and there is equitable implementation of the SDGs. In 2020, CAN and HAC were recognised and included as core members in the technical working group to review and develop the action plan for National Aging Policy in 2017-2030 by Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation (MoSVY).
