The Cambodian Handicraft Association offers women with disabilities (from landmines or polio) a new skills base in handicrafts, tailoring, weaving and running a small business which will allow them to return to their communities and lead an independent life. We produce a range of completely hand made Cambodian silk goods. Selling the participants work in our shop contributes to the costs of running the program. The program provides the students with confidence and self esteem.
CHA is funded mainly through the sale of silk and cotton handicrafts produced in the trainees workroom. By purchasing one of our bags, scarves, toys or other gift items, you are directly investing in the sustainability of CHA’s work, which has so far aided 300 disabled people to return to their communities with new skills and new hope. You can purchase direct from the CHA shop in Phnom Penh or our Online Shop. Contact us regarding wholesale and customer orders.
