Travel Experience

Daughters has 5 small businesses. The Sewing Room employs the majority of clients and currently produces clothing, fashion accessories and home furnishings. The visitor centre also houses Daughters cafe, Sugar 'n Spice, where 6 clients are employed. Here girls cooking and customer service skills that enable them to move into high-end Hotels eventually. Another business is our small women's spa in the premises of the visitor centre, where our girls have been highly trained in massage techniques for hands and feet, head, shoulders and face. The 4th business is silk screen printing and is producing a small range of t-shirts and other screen printed products which we are selling in our shop. And the 5th business is jewellery making, which takes place at the visitor centre so that interested visitors can watch the production.

Responsibility

Daughters' vision is to empower clients with the internal capacity and the external resources to change their own lives. Internal resources involve empowering clients to make changes to their own lives, within their own cultural and social contexts, promoting healthy decision making so that changes are internal, voluntary and sustainable rather than imposed.

Business Case

At Daughters, we are aiming for sustainable outcomes, in which clients can successfully live independently in their own community, and achieve a quality of life. An important part of girls being able to make and sustain lifestyle changes is the provision of a job. Daughters has several small businesses to provide jobs and training to girls who leave the sex industry. Our businesses are fair trade, with higher salaries than in other comparable businesses in Cambodia, and good working conditions. We teach our clients how to sustain their new lifestyles in non-institutional settings, and we provide recovery programs including social work, counselling, medical treatment and life-skills classes.
