Since their foundation in 1991, Khemara has developed a range of community-based services in education, protection and domestic violence prevention, HIV/Aids prevention and reproductive health in direct partnership with their diverse beneficiaries. They also work with government while remaining independent and non-affiliated to any political party. Together, our grassroots structure and local legitimacy provides a unique platform for community concerns to be heard at the national level, and a channel for the Cambodian government to implement development policy.
Established in 1991, Khemara was the very first local Non-Government Organisation (NGO) in Cambodia. Since their inception, they've played a significant role in working for the advancement of local women and children in Cambodia by working directly with vulnerable communities. They are strongly committed to making active contributions to focus groups and national committees who tackle issues we strongly believe in.
Their commitment is reflected in our membership to the following national committees: the HIV/AIDS Coordination Committee; the NGO Committee on Rights of a Child; the NGO Forum; the Cooperation Committee for Cambodia; End Child Prostitution, Abuse and Trafficking in Cambodia; the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women; and the Gender and Development Network Cambodia.See more
