Our sewing program provides women with a sustainable skill that enables them to earn income after just three months. It provides training in sewing skills to an advanced level; microfinance loans to buy sewing machines, and skills to establish sustainable businesses to support the women and their families.

Cambodia remains the poorest ASEAN country by GNI per capita. Also, the unequal distribution of economic gains means many Cambodians still have poor health, low levels of education, skills and employment, and struggle to access essential services. A lack of education and training in the community where HHA operates means that it is difficult for villagers, especially women, to break the cycle of poverty.


Broadly, this program aims to reduce poverty and improve gender equity outcomes. Specifically, the program objectives are to achieve the following for the students of the sewing program and their families: A sustainable skill that enables students to earn income after just three months Greater self-confidence Improved standards of living Improved health, through improved nutrition and hygiene Improved quality of family life Children/siblings enrolled in education.

Long-Term Impact

The following measurable results are expected that within one year of graduating from the sewing program: 1. 92% of students will either be employed externally or have set up their own sewing business 2. 92% of the students will have reduced their levels of poverty and increased their standard of living 3. 81% of students will have tripled their income since starting the program Within 18 months of graduating, 92% of students will have left the poverty bracket.
