Artisans Associations of Cambodia

by World Rehabilitation Fund Vetted since 2014

Summary

Cambodia is among the poorest 1/3 of the world's nations. The likelihood of poverty is increased by factors such as disability and the pressures of maintaining a single parent household. For such people, the possibility of work as an artisan provides a window of hope - they can produce items of value and be able to market them.

Challenge

The ARTISANS ASSOCIATION OF CAMBODIA (AAC) was established to assist local organizations to help people escape poverty through craft production and sales. It supports over 45 groups through technical assistance and training that is provided to Cambodians who are economically disadvantaged. The program needs ongoing financial support in order to continue to provide training and technical assistance to member organizations and their artisans.

Solution

The training and technical assistance provided by AAC to its members covers a wide range of areas including production, design, purchasing, inventory control, pricing, marketing, adherence to international standards for fair employment practices and eco-friendly production methods. AAC interventions enable member organizations to succeed in developing quality products and effective marketing strategies for national & international markets. AAC is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization.

Long-Term Impact

There are currently over 4000 artisans and support staff who are employed primarily by small grass roots organizations throughout Cambodia. Through continued training, technical assistance and collaborative action, more and more artisans will be able to escape poverty and provide support for themselves and their families.
