Banteay Srei (Asian Health Services)

About this Organization

Banteay Srei is a safe space for young Southeast Asian women, that promotes education, community and leadership development to foster cultural pride, and self-determination for women at-risk of or engaged in sexual exploitation.

Banteay Srei provides social, peer and intergenerational support, healing arts, reproductive health education, life skills-building and leadership development. The name Banteay Srei comes from an ancient temple in Cambodia which means “the women’s temple”- built to honor female deities and representing strength, unity, and safety. This name was chosen to inspire a space that would be created to honor women and provide tools for self-empowerment.
