Pilot program gives voice to garment industry workers and drivers

Garment workers entering the factory in the morning

An estimated 700,000 garment factory workers provide the labor for Cambodia’s $7.3 billion USD export sector. Approximately 80% of these workers are women and a majority are at risk every day as they commute to and from the factory due to dangerous road users lacking sufficient driver education, unsafe and overloaded vehicles, informal (unregulated) transport, poor infrastructure, increasingly heavy traffic.

AIP Foundation produced five case studies as part of our garment factory worker pilot program in Cambodia to highlight the experiences of these workers. Please watch the story of Channeth, a 22-year old woman who lives and works in Kampong Chhnang Province. She was driving herself and her brother home from work one day when an incident occurred, which changed her life.
