SAME-Cambodia

Currently, 50% of Cambodian households experience at least one form of violence. SAME-Cambodia is empowering young Cambodian boys and girls aged 12-17 to recognize, report and prevent sexual and gender based violence. We offer a free violence prevention programme to rural and urban schools in Cambodia. We measure our impact through surveys tracking changes in attitudes around social norms.
