Owner description: Daughters of Cambodia is a social enterprise empowering victims of trafficking to leave the sex industry through alternative employment. At the Daughters Visitor Centre, visitors can gain insight into the endemic of trafficking that is ravaging Cambodia while learning more about what Daughters is doing to stop it. Moreover, visitors can actually participate in our work by frequenting one of the three social enterprise businesses housed at the Visitor Centre — our fair-trade shop, cafe or women's spa — all of which provide former victims of trafficking with the vital income and skills to build thriving lives for themselves outside the horrors of the sex industry. To see the cafe's menu or a list of the spa's services, find the Daughters of Cambodia Visitor Centre on Facebook.If you have a large party, please call ahead of time to allow us to better accommodate you.

“Fantastic oasis in busy Phnom Penh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

This place is fantastic. First the cafe - great food, lovely service, coffee and cakes to die for! The shop - lovely range of high quality goods from a range of prices. The spa - wow! Had the most fantastic foot spa and manicure. So professional and relaxing. Added a little nailart for 50c and it was very carefully and professionally done. This is such a good cause and you really get value for money. So you can give support while also enjoying a lovely break from the sights. 110% recommended.

“Every visit helps”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

Enjoyed some quiet time in this centre and restaurant. Went back to get baked goods for the bus trip which were just lovely. Hopefully it will help those now trying to make their lives better. Enjoyed visiting with the staff and the lunch was really tasty

“The best pedicure from a lovely young woman”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

What a great place to support local woman. There are some great bags and beads all made by the women who work at daughters. After walking around for a few days in phnom penh my feet were in need or a bit of TLC. My therapist worked on my feet until they were smooth and soft. this place is well worth a visit to support a great cause.

“A touching visit to Daughters of Cambodia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

Daughters of Cambodia is an organisation that helps and assists women to free themselves from the abusive sex industry, by giving them the training and skills to work in different, safe industries. Women are given training in such areas as hospitality, sewing in the 'sewing room', and day spa treatments, for example, and you can see this in action when visiting Daughers of Cambodia in Phnom Penh.
There is a cafe which sells a range of meals, drinks and cakes. We only ate something small there, but it was delicious. The menu looks large and other diner's meals looked great.
There is also a spa/massage room where you can get massages or manicures and pedicures, for example.
Downstairs is where products made in the sewing rooms are sold - products are beautifully made and good quality, It was nice to purchase something and know, that in your own little way, you've shown your support to these women who are building a new and better life for themselves.
I would recommend you ask to see the short DVD they have on offer to show; it explains all the amazing work that D.O.C. is doing for many women in Cambodia.

“New Life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Knowing the history of the centre it was amazing that so much has been done. The food was excellent. The products made by the "daughters" good quality- got lots of gifts here to take home, knowing I was supporting the women who had made a new life for themselves.
