THE CAMBODIAN WOMEN'S DEVELOPMENT AGENCY (CWDA)

cwdaCWDA is an indigenous, non-profit, non-government organisation with a strong feminist agenda. It grew out of the dissolved Phnom Penh Municipality Women’s Association in May 1993 after accreditation by the Supreme National Council.

CWDA is dedicated to promoting the self-reliant development of disadvantaged Cambodian communities and to the advancement of women’s and children’s rights. CWDA seeks to empower women through collective organisation, personal development, skills training, access to resources and advocacy on their behalf. CWDA facilities the active participation of grassroots women in awareness-raising activities on women’s issues, creating favourable local environments for women’s forums and activities.

Research and advocacy projects are also undertaken in support of specific objectives regarding the protection of women’s and children’s rights. For example CWDA has conducted research together with the Cambodian Prostitutes’ Union on Human Rights abuses of prostitutes in Toul Kork. The survey was significant because it was done by the women concerned themselves. It was a rare study that was done by, not about, prostitutes and their lives, working conditions, suffering in the hands of police and clients. The women themselves made recommendations to the government and to society about what should be done to improve their situation.

Strategic Thematic Direction

During 2011-13, through our Power in Migration and Work thematic programme, we engaged more directly with the migrant rights and labour rights movements. During 2014-2016 our work will build on the work of previous years; we will continue to push for a human rights based approach in anti-trafficking policies and practices.  We will also deepen our engagement with the issue of migration and labour.

The three thematic strategic issues outlined below are continuations of our work during 2011-13.

ACCOUNTABILITY Increasing the accountability of all anti-trafficking stakeholders involved in the design or implementation of anti-trafficking responses, towards the persons whose human rights they purport to protect.

ACCESS TO JUSTICE Broadening spaces for trafficked persons and migrant workers to practice their human rights by improving access to justice and combating all forms of discrimination that impact women’s ability to exercise their human rights as they relate to trafficking.

POWER IN MIGRATION AND WORK Centring an analysis of women’s power in their labour and migration to better assess migration and labour policies’ impact on women, and to work towards labour and migration processes that reflect migrants’ needs, aspirations and capabilities.
