Threading the Needle

Partizan Creatives recently completed a 70 page graphic novel/comic book entitled “Threading the Needle”. Commissioned by the International Labour Organization (UN) and funded by the Levis Strauss Foundation, the book is a simple life-skills guide which aims to increase awareness amongst young people moving from the countryside to start a new life in Phnom Penh’s garment sector. Tens of thousands of young people leave the safety and security of their villages each year to join the 350,000+ workers who already work in the industry. The comic’s aim was to help ease this transition by highlighting some of the key issues young people face. The comic was launched in 2012 and printed in Khmer.
