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.
