The Dept of Women’s Affairs (DWA) has network of offices in all provinces and districts. However, Cambodia is good in developing national plans and paying for staff but not good at funding resources to make it all work. So QSA has supported the DWA in Pursat province for over 7 years by paying for equipment and training for village women in work skills, business skills and personal development. They are focusing on work women can do at home which will reduce number of women moving to Phnom Penh for factory or “entertainment” work. The increase in income will also increase the women’s value to husbands, if they have one (13% are women headed households), reduce domestic violence and help reduce need to take children out of school.
