First Step Cambodia (FSC) is a local NGO launched in 2010, designed to meet the needs of male victims and survivors of sexual abuse and their families, carers, supporters and communities in Cambodia.
These needs are met through social work and other activities related to Prevention & Protection, Support, and Advocacy & Education. Our primary goal is to work in partnership with all for positive change and ensure that all male survivors are enabled to achieve their potential with freedom and dignity.
In order to achieve this, direct social work services that are appropriate and sensitive to males’ needs are available, as well as unique and specialist training, support, learning and consultation opportunities for those working with boys and young men in various settings. To find out more, please click on the relevant pages of this site. Inquiries about services, referrals and training can also be made by calling 012 461 460.
Over the next few months, FSC will be launching a range of unique tools and resources designed to raise awareness, and help those supporting survivors in their work. These include a poster pack for use in communities & organisations, and a film ‘Speaking Our Truth’ aimed at raising awareness and helping people learn important and helpful responses to survivors.
The lack of Khmer language resources available has also lead us to develop an information booklet related to the sexual abuse of males, (the first of its kind available in Khmer) and a toolkit for helping boys express their needs. These resources will become available for use over the next few weeks and months. Watch this space for further news...
