Sasakawa Women's Education and Training Center

On November 2, 1989, H.R.H Princess Soamsawli offically opened the "Narinkaruna Building" and presented a certificate of appreciation to Mr Ryoichi Sasakawa, the late chairman of the SASAKAWA Foundation, who generously provided funds for the construction and operation of the center.

Through the Women's Education and Training Center, APSW provides various courses to help clients develop vocational skills such as sewing, hair dressing, cooking, crafts, housekeeping, Thai Massage and even driving. In May 1989 the first training program was launched with the cooperation of the Department of Non-Formal Education.

Women’s Education and Training Center

WE-Train offers opportunities for women to undergo vocational skills training for income-generating activities organized to help empower them economically

Examples include: Hairdressing, dress-making, baking/cooking, massage, computer skills, arts, mother-child care, care for the elderly etc.

Studies have shown that 80% of women completing the training are able to apply those skills in their new jobs

Education programs are offered at primary and secondary levels, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education

Services are available for both Emergency Home members and the general public

Information regarding women’s issues is integrated in all the programs to raise awareness on the barriers that women often face.
