The Cambodian Women’s Development Agency (CWDA) grew out of the dissolved Phnom Penh Municipality Women’s Association and was accredited as an NGO by the Supreme National Council in May 1993. CWDA aims to promote self-sufficiency and self-reliance in Cambodian communities and advance women’s economic and social rights. We seek to address the problems resulting from two decades of civil war and political instability by empowering women through education, organization and self-development. The three main programs are as follows: Women's Health and HIV/AIDS, Community Self-Prevention against the Trafficking of Women and Children and lastly, Vocational Education.
