ACCESS program improving the lives of persons with disabilities in Cambodiagiant
Today is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. To mark this day, the Australia-Cambodia Cooperation for Equitable Sustainable Services (ACCESS) program is launching a storybook to showcase 15 success stories of persons with disabilities supported by the program.
The book features seven stories of women with disabilities—showcasing their achievements in their communities and highlighting their resilience to overcome many barriers including discrimination.
Tann Soren’s story is one of those highlighted. She lives in Siem Reap province and graduated with a degree in finance. She received entrepreneurship and business management skills training by Agile Development Group (one of the ACCESS’ Implementing Partners), enabling her to improve her business and expand her business network. She is now applying the skills to sell packaged banana chips with her husband.
