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.

After marrying and having three children, Chomrong wanted to change her life. She studied in HHA Cambodia's sewing program; excelled and set up her own business.
