Tinara*, an 18-year old girl whose mother is presently an entertainment worker at Phnom Penh’s Toul Kork district one day visited AFESIP Clinic and counseled by a counselor. After a full concentration and being inspired on good services provided by AFESIP Cambodia center, Tinara wanted to visit the center in Phnom Penh to see how she can adapt the environment with her own eyes. Our outreach staff took her and other entertainment women to visit the center. She was warmly welcomed by center staff. After a tour around the center, showing all activities implemented by different units, she finally told our staff: “I love to stay here” and she further said she loved hairdressing skill as it is a good choice for her future. Her mother is happy with her daughter’s decision and thanks AFESIP Cambodia for its great work.
