Community Action Against Gender-Based Violence

genderviolence

Banteay Srei actively works to promote an end to gender-based violence across communities in Cambodia.

Village Level Action

In each of our target villages, we support volunteer Gender Peace Network (GPN) Co-ordinators, strengthening their capacity in working with community women and men to make positive changes towards addressing gender-based violence.

We provide village level GPN Co-ordinators with training and capacity building on legal rights and issues surrounding gender-based violence, as well as counselling skills, which they use to reduce domestic violence in their community.

Emergency and Legal Support

In addition, we provide emergency support to gender-based violence survivors and co-operate with violence against women stakeholders to provide better legal assistance so that women who choose to take legal action are supported and have access to all available Governmental and non-governmental services including legal action in the courts.

Safe House Project

Since 2005, we have been implementing the Safe House project in Battambang province for violence against women and girls survivors, particularly those who are in the process of legal redress. Read more
