Team Building Friday Fun

Team Building Friday Fun

Taking time out from regular work day busy-ness and reflecting on how we work together is important in any organization. We’re committing the last Friday of every month to spend a couple hours together to “build our team”. As we are three brands sharing a workspace and often collaborating and supporting each other, we’ve brought together all the wonderful women who work here from Cambodia Knits, Fair Weave and Khmer Creations, or an afternoon of fun team games. The main activity was a challenging one. In groups, staff had to recreate a lego (well actually duplo, but they’re just bigger lego) creation. The model was hidden from view however, and only one member of the team was allowed to observe it and try to remember the construction. Once all members felt confident they knew how to arrange their pieces, they worked together (cooperatively, collaboratively) to recreate the model. But once they had started they were not allowed to go back and look! How did the teams do? Have a look at the final pictures below. Looking forward to next month’s team...

Sponsor a Knitter. Create Change.

Sponsor a Knitter. Create Change.

Em Samoeun (55) 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 products. CK is dedicated to creating quality products while empowering women to expand their skill set and improve their standard of living. We’re expanding! As demand for our products 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 lovely creations. As a small token of our appreciation, CK will send you one a postcard with your name written in the beautiful Khmer script. Our training programs We run training programs throughout the year as we find communities that are keen to join our family of products. We send a team of our experienced knitting and crochet trainings to live in a community  providing a total of 17 half-days of training. The women learn about our values, quality control and how to manage their time and resources. Our training is intensive but fun and supportive. Our trainers have been through the program themselves and follow a student-centered training curriculum that gets participants from beginner to emergent professional in...
