The Outreach Program initiates relationships with women working in the sex/entertainment industry.
Staff visit the karaoke bars and beer gardens to contact the women, and inform them about Precious Women. Staff also work to build relationships with the bar owners. Through Outreach, staff implement Empowerment Training about Life Skills, have Women’s Fellowship to bring everyone together, and spread awareness and knowledge through the Voice of Hope Radio. Once these relationships are started with the Outreach program, women are given the opportunity to get more involved through Precious Women’s Butterfly Program.
VOICE OF HOPE RADIO PROGRAM
The Voice of Hope radio program is broadcasted once a week through the Women’s Media Center 102FM in Cambodia. This radio broadcast raises awareness about women working in the entertainment industry in the KBB’s (karaoke bars and beer gardens). It covers topics such as women’s rights, safe migration, crisis pregnancy, and life in the KBB’s.
Precious Women’s Outreach teams visit beer gardens and karaoke bars in Phnom Penh. The Outreach staff talk to the women, listen to their stories, and introduce them to the opportunities available to them at Precious Women. This all begins with building relationships and ensuring that the women feel respected and safe.
Empowerment Training sessions are organized at the Karaoke bars and Beer gardens. This is one of the ways that the Outreach staff continue building relationships with the women. This program provides training on Life Skills topics such as: women’s rights and asserting their rights, women’s self-development, self-awareness, and crisis pregnancy.
Once a month we hold Fellowship Parties, and invite women that we have met through the Outreach programs. We also hold Special Events three times a year for Valentine’s Day, International Women’s Day, and Christmas.
VOCATIONAL TRANING AND SCHOLARSHIP
As we build relationships with women through our Outreach programs, we offer women vocational training or education opportunities based on their skills and interests.
COUNSELINIG AND HEALTH SUPPORT
Precious Women reaches out to women that have faced abuse and exploitation. We want to see holistic healing in their lives, so we provide both emotional support and counseling support to the women.
Butterfly Home is a safe place for women to live while they go through their vocational training or education at Precious Women. While living in Butterfly Home they receive monthly financial support to cover food and other expenses since they aren’t working
The Butterfly Program continues the relationships with the women, and involves them further with Precious Women.
Precious Women enables their resources to meet each woman’s needs. Through the various programs, Precious Women staff provide a clear strategy and implement a plan, opening the door for clients to exit the sex industry. This is done through providing Vocational Training and Scholarship with job opportunities, Counseling and Health Support, and Safe Temporary Housing. Through these programs, the women can experience healing, and gain new skills training to provide for themselves in the future.
