Meet Sopha. She is currently one of our most experienced and skilled knitters from the small community Trapeang Anh Chan (TAC). Sopha is the grandmother of two children and like many, were relocated from central Phnom Penh in 2012 to make way for a railway project.
She is paralyzed from the waist down, meaning she is unable to travel into the city to work. Thanks to support like yours, CK’s project has provided Sopha with the skills to produce handmade products while earning a fair income close to home. Sopha now produces upwards of 200 knitted products a month, a crucial means of income for her family.
Meet Eoang. A resident of our Voice community for the past twenty years, she is one of thousands of locals at risk of being evicted from their home in Phnom Pehn’s Boeng Kak. The lake surrounding her home was once a central source for food and income generation for the residential families in the area. Supporting a family of six, with now limited job opportunities within her community, Eoang uses knitting as a source of additional income.
Thanks to support like yours, Eoang attended one of our training programs two years ago and has used this ability to support her family ever since.
