Prem Boomruang and Wunna Senthong, the senior level CPD coordinators of the FAO TCP project, played a key role in the design and implementation of the training activities. Special thanks are due to Chavalut Chainuvati, CPD Director-General and Kanok Khatikarn, Deputy Director-General for their guidance and support. Ammorn Supawut, CPD Human Resource Development Officer and Salilla Khamdaeng of the CPD Training Division, provided excellent planning support for the training activities. Particular mention must be made of the valuable contribution by the 22 CPD training officers in the five provinces who participated in the trainers' training programme and the testing of the training modules.
Finally, and most important, was the contribution of the 120 members of five women's cooperative groups who participated in the testing of the training modules. Their suggestions and inputs have added the quality needed for the successful development of the training kit.
