SMF has been able to improve communications between and among members of the network, promoting close collaboration on activities, research, and advocacy. We functioned as a resource center for information sharing and a forum for devising strategies and action plans to strengthen skills and partnerships within activities. Our work also ensured that all information produced and disseminated was made available in both Khmer and English, meeting the needs of all network members. We also developed a standard system of reporting and evaluating activities in order to improve the effectiveness of future activities organized by ECPAT-Cambodia.
