Child Rights in Cambodia
Child labour in Cambodia is a serious issue and aggravated further by the pandemic. Prior to the pandemic, it was estimated that 22% of children in Cambodia were out of school and 17% of people were living in poverty. With these numbers increasing, the risk of children dropping out of school early to supplement their families’ income is extremely high. At the same time, many mothers face barriers to breastfeeding at work, do not receive paid maternity leave and protection and have limited access to employer-supported childcare.
Supporting You in Cambodia
The Centre has a network of trained consultants in Cambodia and where needed we also deploy our staff from neighbouring countries to implement projects. To date, The Centre has been involved in child labour remediation, workers need assessments and surveys and a World Bank/IFC funded study on employer-based child care in Cambodia.
