Imagine a seed and that seed is a young girl growing up in poverty in Cambodia. Given the chance to blossom, she has the potential to change the world. But the likelihood is, she will face many obstacles in either being able to go to school or remain past primary school. AusCam Freedom Projects mission is to empower adolescent girls from impoverished communities to break the cycle of poverty and exploitation through education and holistic support leading to life changing opportunities.
When girls have access to education, they are not only physically kept safe in the classroom, but psychologically they are building their self-esteem and self-worth through their academic achievements. We partner with schools located on the fringe of the urban poor communities to identify those girls most at risk of dropping out of the education system and work with the schools, the families and the girls themselves to ensure they can remain in school.
