This meal place setting is made as an income generation activity and skills development program for women and men rescued from sex exploitation by a non government organization called daughtersofcambodia.org. They are beautifully made. I bought these in Melbourne but they have a website with photos of their products for sale. #Cambodia#daughtersofcambodia#tableware
Visited this cafe today- part from the tea and salad being delicious, I’m so glad I was able to check this place out. It supports women who have been victims of human and sex trafficking, teaching them new skills so that they will be able to support themselves and live life with pride and dignity. There is a cafe, spa, and gift shop. All products made in the gift shop are made by the women there. Human trafficking is a really big problem in Cambodia and this place does amazing work in helping women escape their situation. @daughtersvisitorcentre #daughtersofcambodia#phnompenh#cambodia
Phnom Penh by Day!
Började på Tuol Sleng Genocide museum, en minnesplats över folkmorden och tortyren som skedde på 70-talet. Intressant och viktigt, men mycket starka bilder och känslor här. 😔
Har promenerat en del och även besökt Daughters of Cambodia som motverkar trafficking och hjälper offren ur den. Nu tar jag igen mig en stund på mitt vandrarhem, om några timmar går planet till Siem Reap. 😌🙏🏼
An interesting first morning in Phnom Penh, visiting the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Killing fields, taking a walk to look around the city and now having a well deserved lunch at @daughtersvisitorcentre a charity working to help to employ and empower women who have been sex trafficked in Cambodia. Food snaps to follow 😍🧘♂️☀️
After a morning of learning about the atrocities that occurred under the Khmer Rouge, we had the pleasure of having lunch at the the #daughtersofcambodia cafe. This is a business that assists in helping women out of and to remain away from, the sex industry. If you are ever in Phnom Penh, definitely check out of the @daughtersvisitorcentre to show your support to this cause.
Day 120: Phnom Penh. A place rich in history - but a very sad story, unfortunately. My buddy and I got up nice and early to head towards the S21 site, along with the killing fields. Two places which show mankind in its worst capacity. We learned about the brutal regime of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, and the subsequent genocide in Cambodia. It is shocking to think that these atrocities only took place approximately 40 years ago. You walk around these sites in an deeply sombre mood, however, it's incredibly important to go and learn about what happened in this wonderful country and how they have since recovered.
We then headed off for lunch at 'Daughters of Cambodia'. I was super keen to get here - it's a place where women who have been victims of sex trafficking are given another chance - an opportunity to work and reintegrate into society. They sell clothing, accessories, there is a spa and a restaurant. I think this is an incredible concept and I'm glad we got an opportunity to support such a meaningful institution 😊☺️🇰🇭. Following this we popped to the cities main museum to go and check out historical artefacts and the beautiful sculptures which tell a story of the religious influences on Cambodia 😁🇰🇭
After a long day of sight seeing we then hopped on a bus in the late afternoon to Sihanoukville - a place down on the coast. From here we will transfer to the islands of Koh Rong for a few days of beach and R&R 😁😍☺️😴🐠🐟🐡🐬🌏☀️🌊🏝🏝🗺
I get the honor of teaching a weekly workout class at Daughters. Today we talked about goals and New Years resolutions. And teamwork and abdominal work. Having the girls laugh and tease each other is the highlight of my Wednesdays. #godisgood#daughtersofcambodia
