Welcome September 12 2013
The idea for this company arose during a walk through a market in Siem Reap, Cambodia while on a recent trip. After three days I was determined to find a way to make a difference and improve the lives of the people who always seemed to have a smile on their faces. The aim of this company is to provide customers with one of a kind product while providing the creators of the products an opportunity to improve their lives. Craftsmen who have been trained to sew through an empowerment program in Cambodia create all of the products. They are provided with fair and reasonable wages to help improve their standard of living.
My real belief is that education empowers. My main goal is to improve access to education for Cambodian children. In order to attend most schools in Cambodia a uniform is required. The $6.00 cost of the uniform is beyond the reach of most rural families, thus the child is unable to attend school. By committing to donate 5% of the profit from all sales to AboutASIA I aim to provide these children with the required school uniforms as well as bicycles to help them get to school.
It is a product you can feel good about.
