Sponsor a Trainee

Make a life changing difference by sponsoring a young lady training at Connecting Hands Cafe.

Connecting Hands training cafe provides exciting traineeships for young women who have escaped lives of sexual slavery & abuse.

For most Cambodians without a formal education it is almost impossible to find work in any field other than the sex industry. So imagine what it would be like to have all opportunities taken away from you the moment you have been sold or trafficked into the sex industry. For the women receiving training at the Connecting Hands cafe their situations have not been their choice, they have been forced into a life that they most certainly have not chosen themselves.

After spending time to heal and receive physiological support, all our trainees are now ready to reintegrate back into society.

Young women who receive training at the Connecting Hands Cafe will experience a warm and empowering working environment where as they are free to learn all aspects of cooking and operating a professional cafe.

We have experienced & trained cooks & chefs that will patiently work with each young woman as they gain confidence and learn to deliver some amazing culinary delights to their customers.

Our trainees are extremely excited about this opportunity and would like to share their journey with you through an exciting sponsorship opportunity.

For $60 per month you could share this very special journey with a young trainee.
