Working in partnership

No child should be exposed to violence or abuse or neglect. Children and families affected by sexual abuse face a multitude of challenges to overcome their experiences, to establish a safe and healthy environment and to have access to the services they need. Limited access to a social welfare system and various forms of poverty result in complex case management to ensure both children and their families can deal with the many challenges they face.

Without strong partnerships, it can become very challenging for any Cambodian NGO to cover all the needs and to maximize a child's chances to heal.

 

First Step Cambodia believes strongly in working together and sharing our resources. We wish to work in partnership with all local and international NGOs in Cambodia, combining our strengths and services to support vulnerable children.
