Socially responsible enterprises provide sustainable travel opportunities in Phnom Penh
Daughters of Cambodia is a faith-based group of non profit social enterprises operating in Phnom Penh with the sole purpose of offering a new life of freedom to victims of sex-trafficking and sex-exploitation in Cambodia.
Daughters has several small businesses to provide jobs and training to girls who leave the sex industry. Their businesses are fair trade, where they provide higher salaries than in other comparable businesses in Cambodia and good working conditions.
1.Social Cafés to empower women
Dining with a purpose !
Sugar ‘n Spice Cafés are fully-operational restaurants offering a delicious range of foods sure to please any palate. But more than that, their cafés are vocational training centers, where girls who have been trafficked into Cambodia’s murky sex industry can start a new life. Central to Daughters’ mission is the provision of alternative employment for victims of sex trafficking. Their restaurants provide fair-trade jobs while producing an income stream that is reinvested in Daughters’ programs.
2. Charity Shop for a social travel : Daughters’ Boutique
The Daughters of Cambodia Boutique is the perfect showcase to purchase beautiful gifts that not only delight but also change lives. On display you will find fashion accessories including jewelry, scarves and bags, children’s toys, men’s products, T-shirts, and home décor.
Every item sold in the Daughters’ Boutique is produced by young women and men who were formerly trafficked into the sex industry are able to start a new life.
Daughters of Cambodia prioritize fair-trade conditions in all their businesses; clients are paid equitable salaries and have working conditions that promote health and welfare, along with a large number of free supplementary services.
