Sewing Center

In 2010, Community First Initiatives completed the successful sewing center in Smach village with the help of local partners. In 2011, when the initial pilot testing phase of the program was successfully completed, our team of rural development experts reopened the center as a sustainable community center.

The center started as a production site for the RepellaNet, a mosquito net that is treated with a World Health Organization approved solution that both repels insects and kills them on contact.

The product is very successful to this day, and saves countless families in the neighboring villages as we distribute a portion of the center’s output to the most vulnerable families through our malaria prevention initiative

Today, the center’s success keeps growing and the products it manufactures now include school uniforms and clothes for the local markets. Many village chiefs throughout Sen Sok have also expressed a strong interest in replicating this project in their own villages.
