Factory workers’ rights protected with program expansion in Cambodia

February 12, 2021

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia—February 8-12, 2021

Located just outside the Cambodian capital, Kampong Chhnang Province is home to many factory workers who endure dangerous commutes to and from work—many as primary care providers for their family. In the second week of February, the Commuting Safety for Cambodian Workers (CSCW) program, supported by USAID and Solidarity Centre, recruited eight new factories to protect workers’ rights.

AIP Foundation organized a kick-off meeting with management from all eight factories introducing the CSCW program overview including strengthening relationships with unions, engaging stakeholders at the local and national level, and how imperative management’s role is in improving the safety of their workers. They presented positive outcomes of previous CSCW program activities such as training, workshops, experience sharing, and actionable feedback.

All eight factory management representatives expressed their eagerness and enthusiasm for the Program and will schedule dates ahead to attend workshops.
