Projects

CARE's projects in Cambodia all include a focus on at least one of the groups we work with: urban women who are marginalised by occupation, rural women who are denied multiple rights, and women and girls from ethnic minorities.

 

Current projects

         The Ethnic Minority Education project aims to increase students enrollment and retention               rates in primary and lower secondary schools by improving the quality of education, school

         conditions and inclusive child-friendly learning environments, particularly for ethnic                         minority girls.

         The overall purpose of McCleskey is to empower marginalised ethni minority adolescents, 

         especially girls, so that they have expanded life choices in multiple spheres including 

         economic, social and health including sexual and reproductive health.

This project, Enhancing Women’s Voice to Stop Sexual Harassment, is working in four countries in the Mekong to address sexual harassment in the garment industry. The project will develop, test and adapt workplace models for the prevention of and response to sexual harassment in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam.
