    The Cambodian Women’s Crisis Center (CWCC) is a local non-government organisation that was founded in 1997 by a group of women who witnessed the suffering of women and children as a consequence of the war and the various forms of violence carried out against them.

    CWCC has focused its intervention and services on reducing violence and empowering survivors, particularly related to the areas of domestic violence, rape, sexual abuse and exploitation, trafficking of women and children. Social assistance includes psychological counselling, legal protection, safe shelters, anger management for men, economic empowerment through skills training and small business development, access to education for girls and advocacy to uphold women’s rights towards gender equality. CWCC currently has 104 staff members, excluding Board of Directors.

    In 2015, CWCC had an annual budget of US$ 1,400,000 with support and encouragement from generous donors, including: Terre des Hommes of Netherlands, Lotus Outreach, Finn Church Aid (FCA), Georg Krause Stifung (GKS), Friendship with Cambodia (FWC), GIZ, Oxfam GB, Korean Ministry of Gender Equality and Family, and DFAT/ANCP through Australian Foundation for the People in Asia and the Pacific (AFAP).

    • Project

      The project of the Cambodian Women’s Crisis Center (CWCC) is named Women’s Empowerment for Social Transformation (WEST). In this project, CWCC works closely with three target groups: vulnerable women and women and girl survivors of GBV (sexual abuse, trafficking/exploitation and domestic violence), elderly women whose children migrate to work in Thailand thus they are left at home to look after their grandchildren, and finally, disabled women and girls.

      Women and girls living in CWCC’s target areas in Banteay Mean Chey, are often vulnerable to human rights abuses, particularly sexual assault/rape, labour exploitation/trafficking and domestic violence because the areas are very remote and isolated. The issues of abuse, violence and neglect effect the lives of women and girls. The WEST project is designed to address the above problems with the mentioned women and girls becoming agents for change by engaging in the activities to influence duty bearers/policymakers to address their problems and needs.

      The WEST project is implemented in 3 districts of Banteay Mean Chey province (2 communes in each district): Mongkul Borei, O’chrov and Malay. The project focusses on building capacity and confidence of the target groups to form themselves as Women Support Groups, Provincial Women Network and Social Ambassadors to report violence and discrimination cases, as well as expressing their needs to influence duty bearers for services. Furthermore, they will also become community advocators to raise awareness on women’s human right and gender equality. At the same time, the project builds capacity of duty bearers on women human right and gender equality (complimentary by other CWCC’s donors) so that they provide space for women to speak out/express their problems and needs. It is expected that through the project implementation four key results will be achieved:

      Result 1: Twelve women Support Groups (WSGs) in the 3 targeted Districts established and actively raise issues impacting their lives at household and community levels.

      Result 2: Six Social Ambassadors selected and supported to perform the role as Campaigners to promote women’s rights and gender equality

      Result 3: One Provincial Women Network (PWN) established that mobilises vulnerable/ disadvantaged women to actively be involved in advocacy activities to influence service providers and decision/policy makers to respond to the issues related to gender-based violence (GBV)/exploitation and discrimination

      Result 4: Case studies and lessons learned from the activities are documented. The results are taken by WSG, SA and PWN and shared with stakeholders (government and CSOs) to influence decision makers, law enforcement officers to uphold women’s rights and gender equality.
