Training courses on Economic Empowerment for Adult Entertainment Workers using Community-Based Enterprise Development (CBED) Curriculum

Economic empowement for entertainment workers can support them in negotiating for better and safer working conditions, improved access to health services, and support their decision in job change for the better. Two training courses on business skills using CBED approach will be organized for 50 males and females working in entertainment service sector to support their business development plan or business performance.

Economic empowerment through business development can support those workers' efforts to negotiate for better and safer working conditions, with improved access to health services as well as support people who want to leave commercial sex.
Around 50 males and females who are working in adult entertainment service business will participate in a pilot program on business skills capacity buliding using C-BED (Community-Based Enterprise Development) curriculum developed by the ILO. Two training courses are organized in Hanoi in August 2016.
