British Embassy Funded a Project to Empower Cambodian Women

British Embassy Phnom Penh Empower Cambodian WomenCufa is extremely excited to begin a new project in rural Cambodia with the aim of empowering women. The project will be funded by the British Embassy in Phnom Penh with the specific focus of strengthening Cambodian women’s voices and encouraging participation within communities.

The project covers four key topic areas:

  • Benefits of community engagement
  • Confidence Building
  • Public Speaking
  • Women’s Networking Forums

The community relationships that Cufa has formed through our Credit Union Development program and extensive experience working in rural Cambodia will assist us in the project’s implementation. It will be delivered across 21 villages in four provinces and measure the participation rates of women in organisations such as credit unions and village committees. The results will see a higher participation rate and deeper engagement for women within communities. This will enable women to gain skills in areas such as public speaking and create a platform for networking, both within and across rural communities.

We will keep you updated with the project as it unfolds!
