Problem

One in two children experience violence while growing up in Cambodia. This has a powerful and profound impact on their lives and hopes for the future as well as on their families, communities and the society at large. Violence against children is never justifiable. Nor is it inevitable. If its underlying causes are identified and addressed, violence against children is entirely preventable. Parents and caregivers have the greatest potential to protect children and provide for their physical and emotional safety. Unfortunately, many parents and caregivers in Cambodia struggle to provide their children with a safe and positive home environment. As a result, parents and caregivers are common perpetrators of physical and emotional violence and neglect and lack the capacity and resources to protect their children from violence perpetrated by others, including sexual abuse and economic exploitation.

Solution

1. Build capacity of 70 community leaders with positive parenting knowledge and awareness and facilitation skills so that these trained community leaders could echo awareness and training to parents and caregivers in their communities on positive parenting. 2. Select 2 trained community leaders per district and support them to reach out to 100 parents and caregivers per district by organizing community learning forum on positive parenting. The trained community leaders will also promote the innovative learning forum via the free helpline phone 1280 for parents and caregivers to call and learn more about positive parenting. 3. Organize innovative learning forum via the free helpline phone 1280. Child Helpline Cambodia will operate the free helpline services 24/7 for parents and caregivers to call and learn about positive parenting by discussing directly with phone counselors, who are trained and skilled in positive parenting.
