In Cambodia, violence against women is alarming, with one in 89% of them not reporting it. More than half or all children in
Cambodia and experience violence, and often based on gender.
culture and tradition are often tasks as explanations for the gap between legislation or international standards and violence against women and girls. The challenge is to change the 'tradition' of harming women,
and to convince people of the value of behavioral change. The project uses the strength of culture to transform 'traditional' beliefs and behavior patterns. The current
National Action Plan to Prevent Violence Against Women (NAPVAW) requires a Theory of Change built on what makes sense to ordinary men and women . Accordingly, the project poses that culture
can and must be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem.
