"I want the government to give enough stipend to us. We receive only 3,500 riel

a month. All Khmer women want to have a skill, ability in doing jobs."

Phan Syna

"I'd like the government to provide skill training programs, such as sewing,

tailoring or hair-dressing to widows, poor women or other homeless women, so they

can support their life. I hope the government's help will be sufficient in the near

future."

Peou Mon

"I suggest the government provides skills to widows and those women who live

in poverty. They don't pay much attention to women's position in the society."

Ing Srey Poeu

"We'd like the new government to provide jobs to widows and poor women. Aid

is also important. I also hope that NGOs can give us a job."

Dy Sotheary

"My appeal to the government is that the government should help students, poor

families, orphans, widows, as well as all the people, to have appropriate living

conditions. They don't pay heed to many problems. It's Khmer character that priority

is given to men, instead."

Vanny

"I want the government to help widows and unemployed women. Women's position

is bad, plus inadequate living conditions, and if their capacity is low, nobody wants

to offer them a job."
