Pegotec is proud to showcase our involvement in developing and maintaining the “Our Rights app” mobile application. This app, supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), is a significant step towards promoting labor rights and occupational health and safety in the Cambodian garment industry.
The FABRIC (Fostering and Advancing Sustainable Business and Responsible Industrial Practices in the Clothing Industry in Asia) project, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, aims to foster sustainable growth in Asia’s textile and garment production. Supported by various stakeholders, including Asian industry representatives, public sectors, NGOs, and international buyers, the project promotes knowledge transfer, cooperation, and responsible practices in countries such as Bangladesh, Cambodia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Vietnam, and China.
The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, a leading organization in international cooperation for sustainable development, actively supports initiatives that strengthen labor rights, improve occupational health and safety standards, and foster sustainable growth in the textile and garment industry. Working on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), GIZ plays a vital role in implementing projects that empower workers and promote responsible industrial practices. Moreover, GIZ’s partnership with Pegotec in developing the “Our Rights” app exemplifies their commitment to advancing digital solutions that empower workers and promote sustainable practices in the garment industry.
As a trusted partner in digital solutions, Pegotec played a crucial role in developing and maintaining the “Our Rights” mobile application. Our team spearheaded the project management, design, execution, and ongoing maintenance services, ensuring the app’s seamless functionality and effectiveness.
The Our Rights mobile application offers a comprehensive set of features designed to educate and empower garment workers in Cambodia about their labor rights and occupational health and safety. Notably, the app provides easy access to essential information, including employment contracts, wages, working hours, dispute resolution, maternity rights, safety protocols, and more. Additionally, incorporating visual elements such as illustrations and charts, along with voiceovers in Khmer, enhances understanding and accessibility for users. Furthermore, the app supports offline functionality, enabling workers to access content without an internet connection. Push notifications are crucial in informing users about updates in labor laws and occupational health and safety regulations. The app supports multiple languages, including English and Khmer, to cater to a diverse user base. Lastly, Pegotec, in collaboration with GIZ, ensures the app’s optimal performance and security through ongoing maintenance and hosting services.
The “Our Rights – Labor Law in Cambodia App” features a quiz to enhance user engagement and reinforce knowledge retention. Users are presented with chapter-based quiz questions about labor rights, occupational health, and safety. The multiple-choice format allows users to assess their understanding and select the correct answer. If a question is answered incorrectly, users can re-answer until the correct response is chosen. The quiz feature reflects real-life scenarios, encouraging the practical application of knowledge. A points and ranking system fosters competition and motivates workers to strive for higher scores, promoting continuous learning.
The “Our Rights – Labor Law in Cambodia App” was developed using cutting-edge technologies to ensure efficiency, sustainability, and a seamless user experience. Firstly, the app was natively developed for Android, leveraging the Flutter framework for efficient cross-platform development. Additionally, API integration facilitates real-time data synchronization, ensuring users
can access updated content, surveys, and push notifications. The app follows a clean, modern, and professional design, adhering to the principles of Material Design. It offers online and offline functionality, allowing users to access information without an internet connection. The user-friendly interface with a highly contrasted design ensures ease of use and accessibility for all users. The app supports multiple languages, including Khmer and English, to cater to a diverse user base.
Pegotec implemented a functional and intuitive web-based backend platform for content management, enabling GIZ staff to easily update and manage the app’s content. In addition, push notifications keep users informed about new developments, ensuring they stay updated with labor laws and occupational health and safety regulations. Moreover, voiceover integration provides an additional layer of accessibility, allowing users to listen to the questions and answers in Khmer.
Furthermore, Pegotec provides 24-month hosting and maintenance services to ensure the app’s smooth operation, security, and reliability. This commitment to ongoing support guarantees that the app remains functional and up to date, meeting the users’ needs.
By leveraging these advanced technologies and incorporating the quiz feature, the Our Rights app is a powerful tool for educating and empowering garment workers in Cambodia. Additionally, it equips them with the knowledge and resources necessary to understand their labor rights and navigate occupational health and safety regulations. Moreover, the app’s seamless functionality, user-friendly interface, and engaging quiz feature enhance the user learning experience.
