THE ARTISAN : PENH LENH
In 2013, Rachel Dodson founded Penh Lenh, which is based in the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. The organization has a mission of empowering marginalized and at-risk young females in Cambodia. Penh Lenh, which means “whole,” helps to provide a high quality of education, vocational training, career opportunities and professional skills, and finance and budget training to these young women who are part of the organization. This also ultimately benefits the larger community. The young women handcraft each jewel, and 100 percent of the proceeds supports Penh Lenh’s overall mission.
