Our Country Organization team in Cambodia works with diverse teams, not just with BOOKBRIDGE Capability Program, but our Community Heroes, and travels frequently in and out of the country. Also, our community heroes work mostly with children and students attending the offerings at their learning center. Therefore, getting them attended First Aid Training would help them in reacting to expected accidents that would happen at their workplaces.

A First Aid training was organized by mTwenty International and conducted by Ruth Penfold, a British registered nurse, at Anise Hotel in Phnom Penh on March 16, 2018.

Our Cambodia Country Manager and a Community Hero of our learning center in Chreav were sent to attend the training through quality initiative fund and their budget. Other participants are employees/workers of expat families or companies in Phnom Penh.

    Hello – do you offer First Aid training to christian organisations. I help a local NGO in Phnom Penh that reaches women in the garment industry. I thought it would be good if the staff had First Aid training and am trying to find someone who can give that. We are willing to pay. If you cannot do you know of anyone who can?
    thank you
