Every Cambodian woman, child and vulnerable person deserves the best possible chance to improve their lives, exercise their rights and participate in decision-making.

We do this through promoting the capacity, confidence and well-being of women and children. We focus special effort on the reaching the most vulnerable and excluded, to direct positive change in their wider communities.

Since our foundation in 1991, Khemara has developed a range of community-based services in education, protection and domestic violence prevention, HIV/Aids prevention and reproductive health in direct partnership with our diverse beneficiaries. We also work with government while remaining independent and non-affiliated to any political party. Together, our grassroots structure and local legitimacy provides a unique platform for community concerns to be heard at the national level, and a channel for the Cambodian government to implement development policy.
