 Prior Projects - Sustainable Livelihood Training 2002 - 2006


On 30 June 2006, Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA’s Sustainable Livelihood Training project in 7 Provinces and Phnom Penh, was completed. The project was funded by AusAID, three Australian unions and individual donors.

The project, which ran from 1 January 2002 to 30 June 2006, has significantly reduced poverty by providing vocational education and agricultural and life skills.

Training was provided in cooperation with Women in Development (WID) Centres in Battambang, Kampot, Kampong Cham, Preah Vihear and Oddar Meanchey provinces; Technical/Vocational Education and Training Centres in Kandal, Kampot and Siem Reap provinces; Department of Agriculture Forestry & Fishery (DAFF) Kampot province; Cambodian Women's Development Association (CWDA) in Phnom Penh and Cambodian Women for Peace and Development (CWPD) in Kampong Cham.

Training programs were for 6, 4 or 3 months duration and included fish farming technology, vegetable growing, textiles & design, hairdressing & wedding outfitting, welding, motorbike repair, electrical repair, hospitality, office skills and computer. Literacy was included in training for rural women and STD/HIV/AIDS and nutrition in all training.

5,445 disadvantaged people, of whom the majority were women, successfully completed training. Impact assessments show that 90% of those who took part in the vocational and agricultural training provided through Union Aid Abroad - APHEDA's programs were able to earn an income from their skills.

The vocational and agricultural training programs also built self-esteem and enabled much greater community participation. One woman who completed a training course said, "The training I received has provided me with new-found confidence, the ability to earn respect and participate fully in the community, to make friends and bring up children well."

In addition to providing education and skills training for the disadvantaged, the Union Aid Abroad - APHEDA project significantly built the capacities of staff from 10 local partner organisations. Partner staff gained knowledge and experience in reporting, training needs analysis, provision of quality education and training programs, evaluation and field surveys.

Union Aid Abroad - APHEDA continues to provide vocational education and agricultural and life skills through a number of provincial training centre with funding from unions and individual donors.
