To provide educational, medical, administrative and transportation supplies for girls who were victims of trafficing
Rotary Club of Phnom Penh Metro and Rotary Club of Taipei Rui An for funding to help provide educational, medical, administrative and transportation supplies and support at Pleroma Homes for Girls in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Cambodia, ranked as one of the highest rates of human trafficking country in the world, is a source, destination, and transit country for women and children trafficked for the purposes of Commercial Sexual Exploitation (CSE),” as the US Department of State declared in 2007. “There are 80,000 to 100,000 CSE workers in Cambodia, and 80% are under the age of 18,” is the data released by the Cambodia Research Network (CRN) in the same year.
The beneficiary of this project is Pleroma Home for Girls (PHG), which was founded by an organization called Fullness in Christ Fellowship (FICF). The scope of this project is to provide: 1. Primary school and secondary school tuition and school supplies and expenses, 2. Physical check-up and vaccination, 3. Administrative supplies, 4. Transportation fees. The project will conclude within 10 months of the initial date.
The project’s long-term goal would be to train the “victims” themselves to become leaders in the future. Essentially, they would be the most effective “missionaries” to minister to the trafficked victims and to address the needs of the girls in their society. They will be most suitable to carry on the work and to provide the sustainability of these projects. We plan on gradually pass down the leadership to the local Khmers and these future local women leaders, thus bringing peace to the community, the country and the region.
