Stung Treng Women’s Development Centre (SWDC) runs a Computer Laboratory and English Language programme for women. The centre provides computer training and English classes for 80 women (typically relatives of trainees and employees of the centre who tend to be the more disadvantaged in the region) per year, free of charge.
The aim is to improve both English Language and Computer Literacy skills in order to have better job prospects and opportunities, as English is a widely spoken language within Cambodia and both computer skills and the ability to speak English is becoming an ever increasing requirement in many sectors.
Within the classes it is also the aim to improve women’s job preparedness, self-confidence and self-perception of abilities. Both classes run either during the day or evening in order to accommodate everyone.
