ACTIVITIES

ACTED in Cambodia works primarily with the hospitality industry working to improve working conditions, in particular by supporting employers to abide by the Cambodian Labour Law and reduce the risk of sexual gender based violence in their establishments. As part of this work ACTED is currently implementing a European Union funded “Workers Sabay” project in conjunction with the Ministry of Tourism, the Phnom Penh Department of Labour and the Cambodian Food and Service Workers Federation (CFSWF).
This project aims to certify hospitality businesses who abide by Cambodian Labour Law as “worker friendly”, provide free training to employers and employees on the Cambodian Labour Law, and promote certified establishments to Cambodian and international tourists. In addition, ACTED is also working with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport to develop an innovative and sustainable model for Community Learning Centres (CLCs).
