ILO fact sheet on Trafficking Children and Women in Cambodia.
In 2003, ILO/IPEC funded a project in coordination with AFESIP in order to provide rehabilitation assistance to victims of trafficking composed of nonformal education, vocational training, and income generating activities. At the Thai-Cambodian border, ILO/IPEC funded a similar project with Cambodian Children And Handicap Development (CCHDO). With the Cambodian Women's Crisis Center (CWCC), ILO/IPEC helped build the capacity of CWCC to provide rehabilitation assistance to child victims of sexual exploitation. With the Cambodian Centre for the Protection of Children's Rights (CCPCR), ILO/IPEC funded an integrated prevention, protection, and rehabilitation programme for girls at risk and victims of sexual exploitation in Sinhanouk Vile.
In phase I, the TICW project intervened mainly in sending areas including Prey Veng, Phnom Penh, Sihanouk Ville, Battambang and Banteay Meanchey. The project focused on prevention of TICW through capacity building, strengthening, networking and mechanisms for TICW prevention, awareness-raising, rural skills training, income generation and other alternative livelihoods.
In Cambodia, the principal coordinating body for children's affairs is the Cambodian National Committee for Children (CNCC), with which the project has a working relationship. The CNCC is chaired by the Ministry of Social Affairs, Labour, Vocational Training and Youth Rehabilitation (MoSALVY). The MoSALVY has also been working with the project in Phase I through the NSC, and the Ministry of Women and Veteran Affairs has also taken an interest in trafficking in children and women and has been chosen as the national government focal point for UNIAP. Provincial Steering Committees dealing with trafficking prevention were established in Phase I of the project in Prey Veng and Sihanoukville provinces, while efforts are under way in collaboration with UNICEF and IOM at the national level and in target provinces where the TICW project is operating. The project is continuing to work with these bodies at national and sub-national levels in Phase II.
In Cambodia, TICW Phase II is carrying out research and rapid assessments in sending and transit provinces including Prey Veng, Svay Rieng, Kampong Cham and Banteay Meanchey, as well as receiving areas, like Phnom Penh/Kandal, Sihanouk Ville and Siem Reap.
For phase II, a partnership selection process is ongoing. However, the previous partners from Phase I have been encouraged to apply for Phase II Action Programmes.*
In sending/transit areas: Rapid assessments were carried out in 2004 through the National Stakeholder Exercise (NSOE) workshop where target areas were discussed and selected. Action Programmes began in early 2005.
In Prey Veng, Svay Rieng and Kampong Cham, similar project interventions to Phase I are being applied such as awareness raising, rural skills training, credit schemes, income generation, and other alternative livelihood methods.
In receiving areas: Baseline surveys were carried out in 2004 in the sector of beer promotion girls for Phnom Penh, children and women in prostitution in Sihanouk Ville, and hotel and guest house workers in Siem Reap.
The findings of both exercises will serve as the basis for knowledge sharing and justifications for identifying the specific types of interventions and project partners during the forthcoming PSOE in both areas (sending & receiving).
In 2005 ILO published an Analysis Report of the Baseline Survey for the TICW Project Phase II in Yunnan Province.
In 2005 The Mekong Sub-regional Project to Combat Trafficking in Children and Women published Tools for Prevention, Participatory Monitoring: Guidelines for Practitioners in the Fight Against Human Trafficking.
