10 years of Chab Dai: Making a coalition work

The Learning Community project is a definitive part of the Chab Dai programme, being the core of all our coalition-building events, key member trainings and collaboration activities. But since #10yearsofChabDai is all about highlighting the projects and people who have been fundamental to our vision, it seemed like a good opportunity to check in with the LC and its current Project Manager, Um Sam Ol. 

Sam Ol started at Chab Dai as a Media and Communications intern in 2010 and, five years later, oversees the member application process, the resource library and our bi-annual member meetings, as well as key trainings for our member NGOs.

Collaborating with corporations in the fight against trafficking

A decade ago when Chab Dai was set up as a coalition, there were few partners in the movement outside the NGO sector. However, in recent years we have seen a new generation of stakeholders who previously had only been seen as the problem and not part of the solution.

"My motivation lies in supporting my Cambodian colleagues"

We talk to Esther Pastores of World Hope International, one of Chab Dai's coalition members. Esther's initial experience was working with Cambodians in 1987-89, coordinating mother, child health and community services in Site 2 South refugee camp, Thailand with Christian Outreach Relief and Development (CORD). Following this she had the opportunity to help establish primary health care programs in Kampot and Prey Veng from 1990-93, during the UNTAC era.

From Facilitator to National Director

This week we talk to National Director and long-time staff member, Ros Yeng. Yeng's story began back in 2005 when he was one of just three members of staff at Chab Dai the time, sharing an office with World Hope International (we now have a workforce of more than 40 at our independent offices in Phnom Penh!). Having worked as a pastor and counsellor prior to Chab Dai, Yeng was initially hired as a Facilitator and back then his role was varied, planting the first seeds of Chab Dai’s prevention programmes out in the provinces of Cambodia.

On the frontlines of human trafficking aftercare

Recently, I was lucky enough to attend a session aimed at frontline and administrative staff working in human trafficking, giving me a good idea of the kind of training that the Chab Dai coalition offers its member NGOs. Led by pediatrician, health consultant and founder of Relentless, Dr Katherine Welch, the one-day "Essential Health Components of an Aftercare Assistance Program" Workshop covered common issues facing professionals working to support those affected by human trafficking and abuse.
