Hi, I'm Sally! I've lived in Cambodia for 3 years, volunteering at WRC. Prior to moving to Cambodia, I lived in Melbourne, Australia, and worked at WIRE Women's Information for 5 years. I first worked at WIRE as as a telephone counsellor, then team leader, volunteer coordinator and them as a full time Information Support Officer. I hold a Bachelor of International Development and have experience working with vulnerable people, including asylum seekers, in addition to women. I believe in the power of access to information, as well as the provision of preventative measures and education. I stand for fairness and equality. As the WRC Advisor, I work closely with the staff, in particular Pisey, building the capacity of the staff and the organisation.

My name is Khim Pisey. My family is based

in Siem Reap Province. I’m the youngest of 5 sisters and one

brother. In early 2008, I married my husband Kil. Now we have

a lovely five year old son. His name is Sokdin.

Why am I at the Women’s Resource Center? Because WRC

can provide different types of information to women who need

help and don’t know where to go. I am a Cambodian women

and I can say that I understand how women are too shy to talk

about their problems – keeping them inside their minds –

because I used to be like that too. I don’t think it is a good

choice or solution. The problems will get bigger and explode

one day. I want women to come to our center and talk about

their problems because we offer a safe place for emotional

support with free information. Welcome to all women!

My name is Ken Sophal. I come from Takeo province. I have a big family, made up of three older brothers, one older sister and myself. I have a Bachelor Degree of Law at Royal University of Law and Economic (RULE) since 2012 at Pannasastra University of Cambodia in Phnom Penh. I am proud that I can help women in my country as WRC's Legal Aid Facilitator. I enjoy working with women to inform them of their rights and the laws of Cambodia that can protect them. Essential laws for women are the prevention of domestic violence, marriage and family law and the protection of victims. I hope that one day all women in Cambodia are valued and included in developing the country.

     

     BOUNY TE :: CHAIR             

My name is Bouny Te and I am the Chair of WRC’s Board of Directors. I have a Master’s of Social  Work specializing in International and Community Development. I was born in Battambang but grew up in Canada. I returned to Cambodia and helped set up WRC in 2009. WRC believes in offering women the opportunity to ask questions about their lives and their children’s lives. We believe in giving women a safe place where they can come to speak to someone about their issues. We believe in building the skills set of a woman so that she can take care of herself. We believe in connecting women to resources that will give her more opportunities in life.

     KIMSAN OUN :: HEALTH FACILITATOR                                          

My name is Oun Kimsan. I was born in Siem Reap Province. I am 25 years old. Previously I worked at Chongkneas Health Center as a nurse for 2 years, then at Reproductive Health Association of Cambodia (RHAC) for 2 years, as their health facilitator. My experience is providing group discussions and training on HIV AIDS, STI, menstruation, BS, VCCT and counselling. I have worked with many different groups of people, especially women and girls, giving them information about the pregnancy care, birth control, and nutrition. Since becoming WRC's Health Facilitator I am really enjoying working where I can share my knowledge and experience with so many women. I hope to help women and girls to be empowered to make informed decisions about their lives.
