Cambodia

As in many other Asian countries, child sex tourism is a growing problem in Cambodia. We remove children from situations that exploit them. We provide them shelter, therapy and education. We take action with governments and educate communities about children’s rights and the risks of child exploitation.

Our work in Cambodia

Some 17 million people live in Cambodia. Half of them is under age 24. Cambodia is one of Asia’s poorest countries, and many children must work to survive. They are extra vulnerable to sexual and other types of exploitation and trafficking.

Tens of thousands of children work daily to support their families. Often their families live in extreme poverty in rural areas, which they flee in hopes of finding work in cities. The children become exploited, forced to work at a young age in agriculture or housekeeping.

As in many other Asian countries, child sex tourism is a growing problem in Cambodia. We remove children from situations that exploit them. We provide them shelter, therapy and education. We take action with governments and educate communities about children’s rights and the risks of child exploitation.

We offer emergency aid to Rohingya children and their families fleeing violence in Myanmar. Join our fight. Stop child exploitation in Bangladesh.
