Rose Charities Access for All project in Cambodia provides housing for disabled women in close proximity to education. A unique aspect of this program is the Disability Awareness Campaign, where the residents of the home carry out a program in the surrounding villages to break stereotypes about disability. There is a lot of discrimination in Cambodia against people with disabilities. This program allows these girls to show the community what they are capable of – everything!
