The Womyn’s Agenda for Change (WAC) is a locally run independent NGO which has been operating in Cambodia since late 1999. WAC is uniquely positioned to be able to undertake activities that challenge development hegemony, educate and assist the grassroots, organise and effect social change. This plan further refines the organisational goals based on our strengths and the challenges that still exist. WAC assists small grassroots groups towards achieving change in their lives. WAC has and continues to focus its work on the empowerment of women; sex workers, garment workers, migrants, rural farmers and other marginalised groups. Education, international network links and assistance with groups of sex workers has resulted in the formation of the first representative sex worker union in Cambodia.
