Embassy visits CWCC’s Shelters as a part of 16 Day Campaign Violence Against Women and Girls

Ambassador Kang and his family, as well as Deputy Ambassador Andreas Zurbrugg, recently visited Cambodian Women Crisis Centres (CWCC) in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, respectively.

At both centres, Ambassador Kang and Deputy Ambassador Zurbrugg handed over a variety of educational materials, including 813 textbooks, 98 story books, stationery, 3 computers, 3 smart TVs, and 6 sets of tables and chairs. These supplies will help support the children’s libraries, as well as the literacy classes that are run for the children and women who stay at the centres. Australia is also providing funding for teachers to run the classes.

“We are delighted to support the CWCC’s mission toward gender equality, especially their support for women and girls to access education. The empowerment of women and girls is a core priority for Australia and we are committed to enhancing women’s voices, promoting women’s economic empowerment and ending violence against women and girls.” said Ambassador Kang.

CWCC is one of the Implementing Partners under the DFAT-funded Australia-Cambodia Cooperation for Equitable Sustainable Services (ACCESS) Program.
