The Centre for Alliance of Labour and Human Rights has launched a mobile application to support workers in the Kingdom and abroad.
Moeun Tola, executive director of Central, on Tuesday said his organisation already has a social media presence, but it wants to expand its platform.
“We already have our Facebook page, YouTube channel, Twitter [handle] and website. Today, we launch a mobile app because it will be easier for workers and other Cambodians to access information and news related to labour and human rights and other issues, including issues faced by Cambodian migrants abroad,” Mr Tola said, adding that information in the Central App is offered in Khmer and English.
Mr Tola said Central has worked to help Cambodian workers overseas and the app can help share information and news on labour rights.
“We created this app in order to give a chance to Cambodian workers and the general public in the Kingdom and abroad,” he said. “They can follow the information on [labour] rights. They can also report their problem to Central.”
Mr Tola noted that migrant workers can utilise the app’s video and photo features to file a report.
“I think it is good for workers because we can help them when they have a problem, and they can use the app to inform us or file a report,” he said.
In a statement, Central explained how these features can be utilised by its users to report labour issues.
“Central’s app has a chat feature, enabling users to communicate directly with Central’s team,” it said. “The chat feature can be utilised by users to ask questions or as a confidential way to report their labour issues to Central for intervention and assistance.”
According to the statement, the app will offer tutorial videos teaching users valuable skills and digital security.
