During my Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) placement I facilitated a value chain analysis for the chicken market in Sambour in rural Cambodia. This was carried out within an existing framework, and used as a mechanism to develop skills an knowledge among staff at my partner organisation. A final report was prepared with analysis of the findings and recommendations for interventions to improve market access for chicken farmers in Sambour.
- Facilitating the design and execution of the research.
- Conducting training and coaching for the research team using participatory methods.
- Preparing the final report, with recommendations, for donors and other stakeholders.
Sam’s professional experience and understanding of learning and development ensured that he was able to adapt standard VSO training materials to the local context and provide additional content as necessary.PHENG RETH, SENIOR PROGRAMME MANAGER, VSO CAMBODIA
