Anniversary wish to empower women in Cambodia
Organized by: Pisey Khim
EVENT DATE Jan 22, 2016
Happy 5th Anniversary Women's Resource Center!!
For five years now, we have been working hard to empower women and advocate for women's rights and gender equality in Cambodia.
We've found a preventative and informative method that educates the community and requires both women and men, girls and boys, to actively change the social norms that perpetuate gender inequality.
Now, we want to expand our work and we're asking for your help.
In Cambodia, there is an old saying that goes, "a man is gold and a women is cloth." In other words, men never lose their shine or value, but women tear or get dirty. Well, we say this kind of cultural stigmatization stops here!
In 2016, we will run our successful informal educational workshops in the villages in Siem Reap province and directly fight the current culture of silence. We want to educate the community to support women and girls.
So for our anniversary we wish to empower even more women and girls. And with your support, we know we can. Together we can bring change to Cambodia!
