MADE BY SANGORB

Sangorb was removed from public school at the age eight to take care of her family’s cows. She went on to work one job after another, but as she was illiterate, none of them paid well. 

Sangorb eventually got married and lived in a bamboo shack with her husband, struggling to survive from day to day. 

Sangorb joined the sewing program at HHA Cambodia in 2015 and developed a love for sewing. She came top of her class and was hired to make our products at her home. Sangorb also developed a successful sewing business where she can sew and mend clothes for her neighbours. 

In 2017, Sangorb and her husband built a new home for their family with her income from sewing and making our products. Her family has officially moved out of the poverty bracket.

“I realised that for organisations to be sustainable, they needed to be run by local staff. And for local staff to run organisations, they needed to be empowered.”

When Sally Hetherington was 25, she packed up all her belongings and bought a one-way ticket to Cambodia, determined to make a difference. But when she got there, the situation on the ground was grave. Sally had been told that the role she came to play in managing short-term volunteers was crucial to sustainable development. However, what she saw was disempowered staff, children with attachment issues, and an unhealthy ‘white saviour’ syndrome. Sally knew she had to make a big change.

So she started at the core, the community. Sally set about to develop a community centre with a team of Cambodians, with the end goal of making herself redundant. Sticking to her belief of local empowerment in a country filled with voluntourists was tough. Despite the countless obstacles she faced living in a community with a culture significantly different to hers, she was able to form insurmountable relationships and learn first-hand of the struggles of poverty faced by community members in the outskirts of rural Siem Reap.

This manifesto has five years of stories that will make you laugh, cry and challenge your preconceived beliefs about the best way to help people in developing countries. It is a must-read for those who want to make a positive change through ethical and sustainable development.

MADE BY SREYTHOM

Sreythom was born into a family of seven children. When she was in grade seven, Sreythom dropped out of school so she could take up a job as a cleaner, helping to support her family. 

Sreythom got married in her early twenties, but was frequently unwell after giving birth to her children. She stayed at home and worked as a housewife, struggling to manage her health issues at the same time.

In 2017, the staff at HHA Cambodia found Sreythom when they were conducting outreach in her village, around 18km from Siem Reap town. As it turned out, Sreythom had always dreamed of studying sewing, but due to her financial constraints, had never been able to.  

Sreythom’s talent shone through during the 12-month program, and she was hired to make our products once she graduated in 2017. Sreythom notes that she has become patient through learning the new skill, and is more confident to try new things. She says her husband is proud of the brave woman she has become.

Sreythom’s family has officially moved out of poverty thanks to the income she earns through sewing.
