EU puts funds toward women’s rights project

The European Union is putting more than $1 million behind a project to help vulnerable and disadvantaged women in rural Cambodia.

The Promotion and Protection of Women’s Rights and Socio-Economic Empowerment project will be rolled out in Pursat, Kampong Chhnang and Prey Veng provinces over the next three years.

Run by two local NGOs, Gender and Development for Cambodia and Heifer International Cambodia, it will focus on educating women about their legal rights and services, among other things, and reducing domestic violence.
