Em Samoeun (53)
Sponsor a Knitter. Create Change.

Cambodia has a long tradition of producing handmade crafts, however the rural families that produce them are among the country’s most impoverished. Cambodia Knits aims to combat this background by working to increase income and employment opportunities in marginalized communities, training locals to produce high quality, hand-knitted and crocheted woolen products. CK is dedicated to creating the highest quality products while empowering women to expand their skill set and improve their standard of living.

As demand for our product has increased, it has become necessary to train more knitters. Your $45 will change a family’s life, providing a woman with a life long skill and an opportunity for flexible employment that will allow her to support not only her family, but the community around her as well. Specifically, your sponsorship will provide a three-week training program, where the women such as Em Samoeun (above), will master how to create our wooly creations. As a small token of our appreciation, CK will send you one of our adorable handcrafted monkey magnets made by your sponsored knitter.
