The overarching program, The Whole Journey, provides comprehensive trauma-informed support program for women and children affected by human trafficking, slavery and abuse. Through their healing journey, survivors are supported to make choices ensuring their physical and mental health needs are met, they are safe, they are afforded education, training and employment opportunities, can seek legal justice and, where safe to do so, are living back with their families or independently in their community. This project will continue to build on the Hagar Cambodia pilot initiative implemented in 2019, and will increase the number of cohort groups to ensure peer support for more women survivors of abuse, to share learning and build skills to improve their economic livelihoods and financial security. Four geographically diverse cohort groups will be identified to meet the needs of women survivors in rural provinces, as well as Phnom Penh. These cohorts bring together women early in their career in order to build the technical and people skills needed to direct their own career pathway and succeed in the workplace of their choice, or in starting a business of their own. The cohorts provide a safe support network based on a shared understanding of the trauma each of the women has experienced, where they are able to build relationships and confidence as they work together to achieve economic independence.
The Hagar global network has collaboratively developed several shared approaches to monitoring and evaluation, and record data in:
i) Client Management System (CMS) an online database developed for Hagar’s case management work
ii) Global monitoring indicators (GMI) which encompasses Hagar’s impact across all 5 global strategic goals – Heal, Prevent, Partner, Empower and Influence.
These procedures are oversighted by Hagar’s global Quality Assurance Working Group. Both the CMS and the GMI align to Hagar’s:
