We provide our girls with a safe and secure environment where 24-hour security is provided to ensure they remain safe.
Girls home – houses up to 25 girls
There are up to six girls per bedroom, each with one House Mother who undertakes the primary carer role, cleaning and caring for the girls in her room to provide a sense of stability and family. In this smaller environment, within the largeness of the home, the girls start to develop a safe and trusting relationship with their House Mother.
This relationship is fundamental to the girls healing as they are loved and nurtured on their journey of being survivors. Leisure activities such as music, dance, art and life skills training are also provided for the girls. Within the home is a schoolroom, beauty room, sewing room and counselling rooms. These are places where the girls can practice their vocational skills, complete homework, help each other and journey towards hope and healing. There is a large front yard where the girls love to ride their bikes, play games and hold many loud and hilarious games of volleyball. At the rear of the property is a large covered dining area where the girls help the House Mothers prepare meals and enjoy the community of eating together, which is the Khmer culture.
