CAMBODIA: Counseling Center for Women and Children

The Nyemo Counseling Center for Vulnerable Women and Their Children living with HIV/AIDS is a safety net for female-headed households who are HIV+, who are often separated from their extended families and who have been or are at risk of being excluded from the communities in which they now live, because of their HIV status.

Nyemo helps to strengthen networks between local stakeholders and Nyemo partners in order to coordinate and optimize the effectiveness of various activities (such as skill training, HIV prevention, education, literacy, gender rights, nutrition support and health care) and to create a social safety net for women and children affected by HIV/AIDS ensuring that their basic need to live in human dignity is met.
