We want to break the cycle of poverty and gender bias affecting many women in Cambodia and help them to earn an income through vocational training and support.

The sad reality is, 35% of Cambodians are living in multidimensional poverty (UNDP 2018). Women in Cambodia face political, social and economic inequality. Domestic violence is also a significant issue, with 21% of Cambodian women reporting they have experienced physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence (UN Women, 2015).

37% of girls are enrolled in secondary education at the appropriate age, and only 12% of females continue into tertiary education (UNESCO, 2017). One in four women over the age of 15 are illiterate (UNESCO 2015). These low education and literacy rates significantly limit women’s employment opportunities in Cambodia, who mostly work as low-paid farmers or builders.

Through our Zumba fundraiser, we want to help change these statistics. The sewing program we are supporting is run by Human and Hope Association in Siem Reap, who provide marginalised women with a full year of sewing, business, life skills and farming training. This program reduces domestic violence, increases confidence and has already taken 27 families out of poverty.

Together, we can make a huge impact this International Women’s Day and support our sisters!
