Siem Reap Lotus House

Siem Reap
CCPCR is very happy to have established a partnership with Senhoa (www.senhoa.org) in Siem Reap. Early 2011 we opened the Lotus House, a transition home for up to 15 young women, providing them with safe and secure subsidized accommodation. We have two specific target beneficiaries in mind:
  • Young women who are vulnerable to sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking;
  • Women who have completed a shelter program and are in "transition" from living in a shelter to full reintegration back into society.

This facility is not run like our other two shelters. Lotus House focused on girls becoming independent, enabling them to prepare for life outside of a shelter or brothel. The girls have to find employment in order to be able to live in the house and they each need to contribute a small amount to the running of the house each month. We are excited to be partnering with Senhoa on this project and value their partnership.

The Team at the Head Office of Senhoa, led by Lisa Nguyen, the founder and first Executive Director, wrote the following on their website: "At the heart of this project are the provision of safe housing, gradual reintegration and the attainment of 'sustainable freedom'. Our Lotus House aims to teach women the skills needed for independent living, help them find safe and secure employment and provide other needed life skills."
