“I am very excited after completing HHA’s sewing course. Now, I can help support my family and I am confident and brave when I am around people.”
Savy has faced many challenges in her life. When she was just 10 years old, her mother passed away. Her father battled with alcoholism her whole life, leaving her struggling to survive day-to-day.
Yet Savy still had dreams and wanted to study sewing since she was little. But with no money and extra responsibility, she put that dream aside.
However, one day, when conducting community outreach, our Vocational Training Coordinator came across Savy at her house and told her about the free sewing classes at Human and Hope Association.
Savy didn’t delay; she immediately registered in the program, eager to grasp this life-changing opportunity. Living far away from Human and Hope Association with no access to a motorbike, Savy rode her bicycle on an 80-minute round trip each day in the hope she would develop a better life for herself.
After just three months of study, Savy took out a sewing machine microfinance loan through us so she could practice her lessons at home and begin to earn her own income. With a strong commitment, she completed our 10-month sewing course learning life and business skills along the way that developed her self-confidence and leadership.
Savy now works as a seamstress in an ethical factory in Siem Reap. She earns a fair and stable wage and is able to support herself and her family.
Your small donation of just $50 will help change the life of a woman like Savy and help them create the best possible future for their families.
Don’t delay, act now.
