Continue training on broom making to the target group at 6 villages in DakChueng districts
The Participatory Community Development for Livelihoods Improvement and Nutrition Promotion in Rural Areas (LAN) has been implemented by The Association for Rural Mobilisation and Improvement (ARMI) in 30 villages: Atsaphone, Thapangthong District, Savannakhet Province, and DakChueng District, Sekong Province.
On September 8, 2023, we continued to train the technique of broom making for the target group in DakChueng District, Sekong Province in 6 namely: TangBrong Village, Tanglu Village, Tangmi Village, Dakle Village, Dak Yang Village and Daktaocnoy Village, along with 3 people from another villagers and public sector partners interested in participating, including a total of 23 participants (7 women).
The training will be carried out according to 3 main steps: 1) finding the kham (Phragmites karka), 2) tying the kham, 3) bringing it to the head or tying it together. The result of this training: they learn fast, can make many patterns, which this time they can produce a total of 103 pieces, which is considered a lot for a beginner. But there is still a problem: some target villages do not have raw materials, they have to go to find them in the forest or other areas.
