The textile industry has become one of the pillars of the Cambodian economy, employing several hundred thousand workers, the vast majority of whom are women.
With this momentum comes new challenges, including childcare. For many years, Planète Enfants & Développement, with the support of the Cambodian Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, the World Bank, the Japan Social Development Fund (JSDF) and the French Development Agency (AFD), has worked on a childcare service for textile mill workers.
2020 saw the start of CBCC, for " Community Based Childcare Center" a project that aims to provide them with affordable and sustainable childcare solutions.
