While schools and organisations are closed during COVID-19, the Project G team has adapted as follows -
Sewing workshop – We have continued our sewing workshop operations to ensure that our sewing team ladies have ongoing income to support their families
Planning for the future – We have readjusted our educational workshop schedule to allow us to teach more students when schools and organisations reopen
Educator training – We have used this time to train additional educators to enable us to teach more students when schools and organisations reopen
Leadership handover – We have enacted our succession plan, allowing for a smooth handover of responsibilities to the next GM and AGM
Repurpose educators – Our Project G team, along with other Project teams, have been trained on sharing COVID-19 information with villagers in the countryside and so far we have held COVID-19 workshops with over 3000 villagers, teaching them how the virus is transmitted, the risk to people and how to stay safe.

We have hosted many guests in Siem Reap - thank you for helping us pack kits that were made in Siem Reap at our enterprise and thank you for attendeding distributions with us! And a huge thank you to the founder of Days for Girls,Celeste Mergens who has visited us twice in the last few months, as well as the ongoing support of Maria Hicks OAM who is the Regional Representative for Cambodia with Days for Girls.
Project G Empowering Girls sews Days for Girls Kits in Siem Reap. The Kits are washable pads that last 3+ years enabling women and girls to continue on with 'life as usual' during their periods. That means NO missing school, NO shame, NO limited activities and NO lost days. By gifting a Kit, YOU have changed a girls life and created a better future for her and for those that will come after her.
We are looking forward to 2020 and reaching our goal to distirbute 3000 kits for free to rural girls and educate 5000 girls and boys about menstruation, gender equality, hygiene, self-defence and human trafficking.
