We asked APLE Cambodia to tell us a little more about their learning and knowledge sharing practices. Here is what they said:

What area of your practice are you most proud of and why?

Child protection and strengthening of the criminal justice capacity towards implementing child friendly practise in responding to child sexual abuse and exploitation because this is aligned with our strategic goal and our work will change how the criminal justice system in Cambodia treats child victims of sexual abuse/exploitation.  

What should other organisations or practitioners contact you about:

We can be contacted for any enquiry or support for child protection related matters such as reporting suspicion of abuse, legal aid  for child victims, legal advice on how to best handle cases of child sexual abuse, development of child protection policy/measures, training, community engagement and assistance for law enforcement.
