The UNFPA-supported Sibreh Community Support Centre is run by the Islamic NGO Flower Aceh. Here women from two nearby barracks get livelihood training as well as psychosocial counselling and a place for prayer and cultural events. Counsellors visit communities to listen to the displaced people and explain the purpose of the centre. Skills teachers trained by the International Labour Organization teach tile making, cooking and sewing.
The Rumoh Putro Aceh women's centre , managed by Provincial Office of Women's Empowerment (Biro PP), offers skills training for poor women in Aceh Besar district, including 300 tsunami survivors living in nearby barracks. UNFPA helped restore the centre, which was damaged, and supports Biro PP to teach the women cooking, knitting and embroidery.
