Banteay Srei, also known as Citadel of Women is a registered Cambodian NGO with over twenty-five years of experience in partnering with vulnerable Cambodian women and rural communities to bring about political, economic, and societal transformation. Originally stemming from the International Women’s Development Agency (IWDA), an Australian NGO, Banteay Srei has emerged as a leading Cambodian NGO in promoting gender equality,women's rights, and amplifying community efforts to cultivate positive gender relations and combat Gender‐Based Violence (GBV) in Cambodia.

Banteay Srei has been delivering programs for gender equality and women's empowerment, aimed atamplifying their voices, enhancing their understand of rights, acquiring skills to boost household income, mitigating violence in their homes, and fostering community leadership. In November 2013, Banteay Srei formulated the Strategic Plan 2014-2018. Designed as a holistic model, it integrates various thematic areas in women's empowerment and gender equality, with the goal of strengthening women's leadership capacity while assisting them in enhancing their economic and social situations at the individual, household, and community levels.

The impacts of Banteay Srei's efforts have been demonstrated not only at the household and village levels in terms of reducing violence and increasing household income, but also through the commitment and investments from the Provincial Governments in both provinces. For some women, particularly those who have engaged with Banteay Srei over an extended period, it has propelled them into leadership roles at the commune level. The community volunteers, serving as community facilitators at the village level, have significantly enhanced the efficiency of program outreach and support for beneficiaries. In 2019, as a transitional year, Banteay Srei developed the Operational Plan 2019-2021 to guide the field implementation, aligning with the previous program strategy. In November 2019, Banteay Srei made the decision to create a new Strategic Plan 2020-2024.
